As expected, Francesco Lodi has officially extended his contract with Catania until June 2016.
The creative midfielder had been in negotiations for several weeks and put pen to paper today.
It was announced by Calcio Catania with a statement, while Lodi also posted the news on his Twitter page complete with a picture of him signing the deal.
“I want to repay the club for having faith in me, so I am tying myself to the colours that have given me so much.”
It is reported Lodi’s wages have been increased from €350,000 per season to €500,000 with extra bonuses for goals and appearances.
There does not appear to be any buy-out clause in the new contract.
