Ospina extends Nice contract

Nice have extended Colombian international goalkeeper David Ospina's current deal by a year, until 2013, the French first division side announced today.

The 22-year-old Ospina has emerged as one of the best goalkeepers in the French top flight, which he joined in 2008 from Atletico Nacional Medellin, and is drawing attention from major French clubs.

Nice also secured the services of Peru's international goalkeeper Raul Fernandez earlier this week on a four-and-a-half year deal.

Fernandez was signed to cushion the impending retirement of Lionel Letizi at the end of the season and will have the number two role behind Ospina.
