Martin Montoya set to sign Barcelona contract extension until 2014 - report

The promising defender is on the verge of putting pen to paper on a new deal with the Spanish and European champions, as he is keen to stay at his current club
Martin Montoya is on the verge of signing a new contract with Barcelona after agreeing terms on a two-year extension to his current deal, Sport reports.

The defender's contract is due to expire at the end of the season and both sides had been in talks about a new deal for several months.

Barcelona and the right-back have now reached an agreement, though, and Montoya will put pen to paper once he returns from international duty with Spain's Under-21 side.

The 20-year-old is a product of the Barcelona youth academy and made his official first-team debut in February 2011.

Montoya was one of the stars at the Uefa U-21 European Championships in Denmark earlier this summer, playing a key role in Spain's successful campaign.

He was linked with clubs such as Roma and Valencia during the summer transfer window, but opted to stay at Camp Nou and has now been rewarded with a new deal.
