Andreu Fontās has extended his contract for a further season, keeping him at the club until the end of the 2011/12 season.

The 20-year-old Barca B defender is currently training with the first team and this morning he came into the club offices to put pen to paper on a contract extension that’ll keep him at the Nou Camp till June 2012. President Sandro Rosell and Vice President Josep Maria Bertomeu were both present at the signing.

Last season, Fontas was a key part of the team and only an injury in the closing stages of the season kept him from playing more than the 2407 minutes over 26 games. Fontās made his debut with the first team against Sporting in the opening game of the 2009/10 season.

Fontās is still recovering from last season’s injury, but he’s optimistic about his chances: “Guardiola told me to recover and take it easy and I hope that I can be back in full training soon and show what I can do, like all the Barca B players”.
