Official: Lazio tie down Radu until 2020

The Romanian full-back has been rewarded for helping the club finish third in Serie A last season with a brand new contract

Stefan Radu has committed his long-term future to Lazio by signing a five-year contract at the Stadio Olimpico.

The Romanian left-back's deal in the Italian capital had been due to expire in June 2016, leaving him vulnerable to low bids from interested clubs.

But Radu, 28, will now remain with Lazio until 2020 after helping them to third place in Serie A last campaign.

Radu joined Lazio in 2008 from Dinamo Bucharest and has won two Coppa Italia titles and a Supercoppa Italiana in his time with the team.
