Napoli extend deal of former Spurs flop Chiriches to 2022

The Serie A leaders have announced that the Romania international centre-back has agreed a new four-year deal with the club

Vlad Chiriches has signed a contract extension which will keep him at Napoli until 2022.

The Romania international joined the club in July 2015 for a reported €7 million after failing to hold down a regular place in Tottenham's team.

He has found himself in a similar position at Napoli, playing the role of a reserve centre-back throughout his time at the Stadio San Paolo.

Chiriches has made just six Serie A appearances this term, with Raul Albiol and Kalidou Koulibaly preferred to him.

But he has seemingly done enough to suggest he has plenty to offer coach Maurizio Sarri, with the club handing him a new four-year deal.

Having penned fresh terms, the 28-year-old will now be hoping to help Napoli to the Italian title.

They hold a four-point lead over reigning champions Juventus at the top of Serie A, but the Bianconeri do have a game in hand.
