Perrin stays faithful to Saint-Etienne

24 September 2014, 18:29

Saint-Tienne - Saint-Etienne captain Loic Perrin has signed a two-year contract extension, tying him to his hometown team until 2018, the Ligue 1 club announced on Wednesday.

The 29-year-old central defender, who is currently recovering from a thigh injury, joined Les Verts at the age of 13 and signed his first professional contract in 2001.

Perrin captained Saint-Etienne to a 1-0 victory over Rennes in the Coupe de la Ligue in 2013 as the club ended a trophy drought of more than three decades.

He was named in the Ligue 1 team of the season for 2013-14 by his fellow professionals and was included on France coach Didier Deschamps' stand-by list for the World Cup.

The deal for Perrin, which will see him take on a role on the staff when his playing career ends, follows the announcement earlier this week that France international goalkeeper Stephane Ruffier had extended his contract until 2018.

Saint-Etienne are three points behind Ligue 1 leaders Marseille before hosting Bordeaux on Thursday night.
