Porto put faith in young pair

FC Porto have extended the contracts of promising keeper Bruno Vale and midfielder Paulo Machado until 2010.

Joint statement
The 22-year-old Bruno Vale and 19-year-old Machado are now tied to the two-time European champions until 2010. "This extension is a clear sign that Porto are counting on us for the future. Our move to Estrela da Amadora will be positive, giving us regular football in the Portuguese SuperLiga. We hope to develop our games and look forward to returning to Porto in the near future," the pair said.
