Fonte Pens New Saints Deal

Fonte Pens New Saints Deal

Jose Fonte has today put pen to paper on a new three year contract at the club.

The defender is now contracted to us until the summer of 2017 and as well as signing his new deal, he has also been announced as our new team skipper for the coming campaign.

Speaking to saintsfc as the deal was announced manager Ronald Koeman said he believed this was another sign of the continuing ambition of the club and importantly that some are more than happy to stay and continue their progress with us.

'We are very happy because we like to keep the good players, the experienced players. Jose is the captain for this season on the field. We have another captain in Kelvin Davis who is the captain of the club but Jose is the captain on the pitch. I am very pleased about his new contract which keeps the good players and keeps our ambition and philosophy of the club, and I happy about that. It's a signal to everybody.'
