Bastos extends Lyon contract

Lyon's Brazilian winger Michel Bastos has signed a two-year contract extension, the Ligue 1 club announced on Wednesday.

Bastos joined the seven-time French champions from Lille in June 2009 for a fee of €18 million on a four-year deal. His new deal will keep him at the club until the summer of 2015.

The 28-year-old, who played for Brazil at last year's FIFA World Cup™, has enjoyed a fine start to this season, scoring twice to help his club to second place in Ligue 1.

Lyon are level on 17 points with leaders Paris Saint-Germain, who they will face this weekend.
