Barcelona goalkeeper Jose Pinto is set to commit his future to the side in the coming weeks, the club has announced.

The 37-year-old shot-stopper, who joined Barcelona in 2008, has agreed to sign a fresh deal that will keep him at Camp Nou until the summer of 2014.

A statement on Barcelona's official website read: "FC Barcelona have reached an agreement with goalkeeper Jose Manuel Pinto to extend his contract until June 30, 2014. The player's contract will be signed in the coming weeks."

Pinto has made 52 appearances for the Blaugrana since joining the side from Celta Vigo, when he was signed to replace the injured Albert Jonquera. He has represented Barca in both La Liga and the Champions League, but the majority of his performances have come in the Copa del Rey, in which he has started 34 times.
