Fofana’s new deal means he is committed to remaining at Stade Marcel Michelin until June 2023.

The 30-year-old has been at Clermont Auvergne since 2008 and is now set to remain at the club beyond his 35th birthday.

Having spent his entire professional career to date with Clermont, he’s delighted to be staying with the 2017 French champions.

“I realise that this is an incredible chance for a player to evolve in front of an audience as extraordinary as that of the Michelin, to feel this passion every time we defend our colours,” said Fofana.

“Leaving would have left a huge emptiness. I am very glad that they can accompany me for a few more years.”
