Keita signs new Barça deal
Seydou Keita has signed a two-year contract extension with Barcelona, which depending on appearances will see him remain with the Catalan giants until 2014.
The Mali international, whose existing deal ran out in 2012, will see his deal automatically renewed each year if he plays a certain amount of games.
The buy-out clause in the 30-year-old's new contract has been increased slightly to €100million.
Keita, who became the first player from Mali to play for Barça when he moved from Sevilla in 2008, told the club's website: "I'm very happy to play in Barcelona. I'm playing my third season here and I've won everything, but I want to continue winning more things."
The former Lens, Lorient and Marseille player will be 34 when his contract runs out, and he admits he would like to end his career at the Nou Camp if possible.
"Here there are many demands and if I can I'm sure that I will retire here. That's my dream, but you need to take it step by step," said Keita.
