José Fonte wants to sign new Lille deal, confirms offer

Speaking to RMC Sport, 37-year-old Portuguese central defender and Ligue 1 title winner José Fonte confirmed his desire to sign a new deal with Lille, as his current contract expires next month.

“There are talks. The president spoke with me and my agents. We are waiting to see what will happen. Yes, I want to continue, that’s normal. I like being here. I have a very good relationship with the supporters, with everyone at Luchin. I feel that everyone respects me and that is reciprocated. If I keep up my level, it is normal to want to continue… I have not seen the offer. We have spoken. I want to stay.”
