AS Nancy-Lorraine have awarded midfield pair Landry N'Guemo and Moncef Zerka and defenders Sébastien Puygrenier and Mickaël Chrétien long-term contract extensions.
All four players were under contract with the French League Cup winners next season; the 20-year-old Cameroonian midfielder N'Guemo's new deal will keep him at the Ligue 1 club until 2009 while the 24-year-old Zerka, who scored six goals in the league this season, will stay with Nancy until 2010. Chrétien, a 21-year-old right-back, will also spend the next four seasons with the club, and the 24-year-old centre-back Puygrenier has signed a deal that will run until 2011. "We have still a good long way to go together with Nancy," Chrétien said.
Trust in players
"We believe in consistency," said Nancy president Jacques Rousselot, who also revealed that the French club were keen to acquire an attacking midfielder and a striker. "It's the reason why we trust our players."
