Iborra renews at Sevilla

Sevilla have confirmed that Vicente Iborra has committed his future to the club by signing a new deal until 2020.

Iborra, who was heavily linked with a move to English Premier League side Sunderland over summer, was appointed as captain of the Andalucian club earlier this month and has played 137 games for the club to date.

In an official statement released on Wednesday morning, Sevilla referred to the midfielder as 'a real dressing room leader'.

The 28-year-old joined Sevilla three years ago after spending five years at Levante where he had begun his career.

His current deal had less than two years still to run after he had signed a five-year deal when signing for the club, but this has now been extended for two years.

He is primarily played in midfield, but recently deputised briefly as goalkeeper against Athletic Bilbao after Salvatore Sirigu's red card after all three substitutions had been used.
