Real Madrid CF defenders Pepe and Sergio Ramos have agreed to contract extensions that will tie them to the club until 2016 and 2017 respectively.

Spanish international defender Sergio Ramos – whose previous deal was due to expire in two years' time – has been a Madrid regular since signing for the club from Sevilla FC in 2006. The 25-year-old has played 195 Liga games for the club.

Pepe, 28, has lengthened his stay with the Merengues by a further four years having made 81 league appearances since joining from FC Porto in 2007.

News of the pair's renewed commitment follows a productive summer recruitment campaign for José Mourinho's side, with Fábio Coentrão, Raphaël Varane, Hamit Altıntop, Nuri Şahin and José Callejón all having recently arrived at the Santiago Bernabéu.

Real Madrid qualified for the group stage of the UEFA Champions League after finishing runners-up to FC Barcelona in the Liga last season.
