Gervinho extends deal at Roma

16 September 2014, 15:40

Milan -Roma striker Gervinho is set to remain at the club until 2018 after extending his current deal by a year, the Serie A side have announced.

The Ivory Coast international joined Roma in 2013 from Arsenal in a reported 8m euros deal and made a positive impact for the Giallorossi scoring nine times in 33 league appearances.

A statement from the club said: "Roma announces that Yao Gervais Kouassi (Gervinho) has extended his contract by one year." Gervinho's deal was set to expire in 2017.

Gervinho scored his opening goal of the league season last week in a 2-0 win over Fiorentina and is expected to start for Rudi Garcia's side when they host CSKA Moscow in their Group E opener at the Olympic Stadium on Wednesday.
