Girona award contract extension to veteran defender on back of impressive debut season



Many eyebrows were raised last summer when Girona completed the signing of former Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Ajax defender Daley Blind, but this turned out to be a very smart signing from the Catalans.

Blind has been an undisputed starter for Michel Sanchez this season and played an important role in Girona securing Champions League qualification, which they achieved earlier this month. As a result, the 34-year-old has been given a one-year contract extension, which was announced on Wednesday.

Blind has signed an initial contract that will keep him at the Catalan side until the summer of 2025, but his stay is now set until 2026. His experience will be invaluable to his Girona teammates ahead of the club's first Champions League campaign next season.

It promises to be a very busy summer for Girona, and they have had a good start with the revamp of Blend. There should be a lot of additional activity over the coming weeks and months.
