Ivory Coast international Abdoulaye Bamba has extended his stay with French Ligue 1 side Angers SCO.
The defender has signed a new two-year deal with the Black and Whites which will see him remain with the club until 2023.
Bamba, who is a right-back by trade, has been on the books of Angers since January 2017 and he has played 57 league games for the team.
A club statement read: “Angers SCO is pleased to announce a new extension [after] defender Abdoulaye Bamba renewed his contract with the Angevin club until 2023.”
“He joined Angers in January 2017 when the club was 17th in Ligue 1 and at the end of the second part of the season, he had been perfectly integrated into the group.
“But it was truly during the 2018-2019 fiscal year that he demonstrated all of his qualities in the jersey. His adventure with Angers is not over, because Abdoulaye has decided to extend his stay until 2023.”
The 2019/20 Ligue 1 season was canceled due to the coronavirus which has killed thousands of people worldwide.
Bamba was nurtured in the academy of Italian giants Juventus and he played for French club Dijon before joining Angers.
