Lazio defender Stefan Radu has signed a contract extension that will keep him at the Stadio Olimpico for a further four years.

Radu, whose previous deal ended in June 2012, had been linked with Manchester City and Chelsea earlier this year after solid performances with the Serie A outfit this season.

A statement from Lazio read: "Lazio announces that player Stefan Radu has signed a contract extension until June 2016."

The 24-year-old Romania international joined Lazio from Dinamo Bucharest in 2008
