Gohouri signs Wigan extension

Wigan Athletic defender Steve Gohouri has signed a contract extension with the club.

The 30-year old Ivorian has agreed a new deal to remain at the DW Stadium until the summer of 2013 and his agent said it was a very favourable agreement for both parties.

" We are delighted with Steve's new contract with Wigan," said Rui Alves.

"(Manager) Roberto (Martinez) and (Wigan chairman) Mr Whelan are fantastic people and this team deserve to be in the Premier League.

"Steve had some contacts to go somewhere else next season, but we decided to stay here and make this club a very good club, with some good signings they can have a great season next year."
