Barcelona - Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets has extended his contract with the Catalan giants until 2019, the club confirmed on Thursday.

"FC Barcelona have reached an agreement with Sergio Busquets for the renewal of his contract until June 30, 2019 with the option for another year," said a statement on the club's website.

The 26-year-old has made over 300 appearances for Barca and won 16 trophies since breaking into the first team under the orders of Pep Guardiola during the club's famous treble winning season in 2008/09.

Spanish media also reported that the new deal will see Busquets move up the pay ladder at the Camp Nou just behind the star trio of Lionel Messi, Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta.
