Thiago Silva stays put at Milan

AC Milan defender Thiago Silva has agreed a new deal until June 2017 as the Brazil centre-back prepares for another UEFA Champions League campaign with the Serie A runners-up.

AC Milan defender Thiago Silva has agreed a new deal running for five years.

A Milan statement confirmed that the club have "extended the player's contract until 30 June 2017". The Brazilian international centre-back, 27, joined from Fluminense FC in January 2009 and was key to earning a Serie A title and a run to last season's UEFA Champions League quarter-finals. Having finished second behind Juventus in 2011/12, Milan begin the next UEFA Champions League in the group stage.
