Bruno Ecuele Manga has signed a new contract at Cardiff City.
The 28-year-old joined the Bluebirds in the summer of 2014 for a fee of £5million, and he has gone on to score five goals in 77 appearances for the club in all competitions.
Ecuele Manga was due to become a free agent at the end of this week when his contract was due to expire, but he has now signed a new two-year deal to extend his stay.
“I am really pleased to be continuing my adventure with this magnificent club,” he told the club’s website. “Now it’s time to work towards getting back to where we all want to be.”
The central defender has made 67 international appearances for Gabon, and City boss Neil Warnock is thrilled to secure his services as he plots a bid for promotion to the Premier League.
“It’s been quite a long process to get this done, but what’s been clear to me is that Bruno wants to play for this club, which is the most important thing,” he said. “I’m absolutely delighted.”
Ecuele Manga was born in Gabon but moved to France to link up with Bordeaux as an 18-year-old in 2006, and has also played for Rodez (loan), Angers, and Lorient.
