PSG youngster Bahebeck signs four-year contract extension

Jean-Christophe Bahebeck has committed his future to Paris Saint-Germain by signing a four-year contract extension.

The 21-year-old striker has risen through the ranks at Parc des Princes and will now remain in the French capital until at least June 2019.

"I am very happy to be continuing with my club," Bahebeck told the club's official website.

"Paris Saint-Germain is the perfect place to learn and progress alongside world-class players.

"I will do everything I can to help construct this magnificent project."

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi was also thrilled to extend the deal of home-grown talent Bahebeck.

"We want to show our confidence in our young players that have come through the ranks of our youth academy," he commented.

"We are very proud that Jean-Christophe Bahebeck is signing up to become a long-term element of our project.

"He represents the future of Paris Saint-Germain."

The news comes after Kingsley Coman, who joined Juventus from PSG this summer, claimed the capital club is currently ill-suited for young players to develop.

France youth international Bahebeck made his first-team debut in March 2011 before signing an initial three-year deal, before those terms were ultimately extended until 2016.

He spent last season on loan with Valenciennes after having played for Troyes in 2012-13 campaign.
