Brazilian center half Marquinhos has signed a new three-year deal with Paris Saint-Germain, tying him to the club until 2022.

The 23-year-old international joined PSG from Italian side Roma in 2013, but was in and out of the team until becoming a first-choice defender last season under coach Unai Emery.

Marquinhos, whose previous contract expired in 2019, has made 161 appearances for PSG and scored 13 goals, using his heading ability from set pieces.

PSG president Nasser El-Khelaifi says Marquinhos ''has always shown an irreproachable attitude'' and has ''developed a very strong link with our club (and) its supporters.''

He becomes the latest key player to extend his contract, following top scorer Edinson Cavani and center back partner Thiago Silva.
