Roma — Italy winger Antonio Candreva has extended his contract with Lazio for one more season, keeping him at the club through 2018-19.

Candreva, a member of Italy's World Cup squad, made the announcement to a Lazio radio station on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old Candreva did not reveal details, but the Gazzetta dello Sport reports the deal includes a raise from1.2 million to about2 million per season.

Candreva says "if I think back to two and a half years ago I would never have thought I would reach this point. It seemed as if I had bought houses in every city."

Until settling with his hometown club in January 2012, Candreva played for Livorno, Juventus, Parma and Cesena in a series of loan deals while under contract with Udinese.
