Yassine Benrahou has extended his contract with Ligue 1 side Bordeaux until 2022.

The youngster joined the Girondins in 2016 and then signed his first professional contract with a three-year deal from August 2018.

Benrahou, who featured prominently for Bordeaux II last season, had made four league appearances in the first-team.

This season, the former Morocco U20 midfielder has started the opening two league games for the Girondins against Angers and Montpellier.

On Thursday, Benrahou put pen to paper on a new deal with the Matmut Atlantique outfit as he is set to play a key role for Paulo Sousa’s men this term.

Benrahou will be expected to feature when Bordeaux visit Stade Gaston-Gerard to take on Dijon on Saturday.
