Vincent Enyeama has signed
a new contract to stay at French
Ligue 1 side, Lille OSC.
According to the club, the
Nigeria shot-stopper penned a
new deal that will keep him in the
north of France till 2019.
“LOSC is pleased and proud to
announce the extension of Vincent
Enyeama contract for two more
seasons. The Nigerian goalkeeper,
33 years, will continue to defend
the post of LOSC until 2019,” Lille
OSC announced on their official
website on Thursday.
The French club explained
that they have decided to agree a
renewal with Enyeama because
he is a big influence in their
dressing room in terms of “his
experience in international games,
his leadership, and of course, his
immense talent.”
Lille OSC training centre director
Jean-Michel Vandamme believes
that keeping Enyeama at the club
is “fantastic” news considering his
“Vincent is an exceptional lad
both on the field, and also outside.
Continuing to work with a player
of his calibre and a man of his
quality is something fantastic for
the club. He still has a bright future
and showed that again this season.
He is happy at LOSC and feels like
home (for him),” said Vandamme.
There were speculations over the
future of the 33-year-old custodian
in recent weeks as his contract at
Lille was due to run out in June
2017 until the renewal.
Enyeama kept 17 clean sheets
this season in the league for Lille,
making 93 saves including 53 from
inside the box.
