Lille extend Enyeama's contract till 2017

Vincent Enyeama
Nigeria goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, will stay at French Ligue 1 side, Lille OSC, for the next two seasons.

The announcement of the contract extension of the 31-year-old goalkeeper was made by the French club on their official website on Friday.

The announcement read: "LOSC is pleased to announce the extension of the contract of Vincent Enyeama. The Nigerian international goalkeeper has extended the term of its lease for two additional seasons. He therefore wears the Jersey of the Great Danes until 2017."

The contract extension for the Nigerian goalkeeper will not come as a surprise as he has conceded just four goals in 16 top-flight matches in Lille's colours this term.

The ex-Enyimba custodian has kept clean sheets of 1,035 minutes and is now edging close to equalling or even surpassing the former of former Bordeaux goalkeeper, Gaetan Huard which stands at 1,176 minutes set in the 1992/93 season.

Enyeama expressed happiness following his contract extension and pledged to "continue to assist the team in goal this season" and subsequent ones.

"I'm really happy to be part of this team and very happy to have signed this contract extension. I just want to continue to assist the team in goal this season, but for those that will follow," Enyeama told on Friday.

This week, Lille manager, Rene Girard, had heaped praise on the Nigerian saying "he is grounded and has made critical decisions" this term for the team.

Already this season, Enyeama has been named the Player of the month in October in Ligue 1 following his catchy performance in goal for the Great Danes.

The statement on Lille's official website rounded off by saying: "It is relaxation associated with leadership, professionalism and his sense of the collective that make Vincent Enyeama one of the strong men of the new Lille cycle implemented by Rene Girard. There is no doubt that at 31, he will be a key element in the success of the LOSC's tomorrow."
