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.

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."
