Cape Town - Roma have confirmed thatl full-back Maicon has put pen to paper on a new one-year contract extension at the Stadio Olimpico.

The 33-year-old, whose original deal was set to expire at the end of the current campaign, has enjoyed somewhat of a return to form since his move from Manchester City last year, establishing himself as the Giallorossi's first-choice right-back.

The new deal will see Maicon remain at the capital club until the end of the 2015/2016 season and has the option of a further year.

A club statement read: "AS Roma is pleased to announce that Maicon Douglas Sisenando has signed a contract extension with the club. His new deal will run until 30 June 2016 and includes an option for a further season."

Maicon himself added: "I'm proud to go on wearing these colours for many years to come.

"It's a great honour and now it's down to me to perform."
