Ex-Super Eagles captain and Lille’s goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, has extended his contract with the northern French club by two years until 2019.

The 33-year-old was a key member of the Lille team that this season finished fifth in Ligue 1, ensuring a place in the preliminary qualifying round for the Europa League.

In conceding just 27 goals, Lille enjoyed the league’s second best defence after runaway champions Paris Saint-Germain.

Enyeama retired from international duty last year after having won a Nigerian record 101 caps.
