Montpellier HSC defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa agrees a two-year contract extension with the club.

Montpellier HSC defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa has quashed speculation over his future by agreeing a new deal with the French club.

The 23-year-old was linked with a host of top clubs, including AC Milan, Arsenal and Newcastle United, but has now extended his stay at the Stade de la Mosson for a further two years.

"Montpellier and the club's board are very pleased to announce the contract extension of captain Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa," read a statement from the Ligue 1 side.

"His deal was due to expire in June 2013, but the France international has chosen to continue the adventure here for a further two seasons. He is now linked to MHSC until June 2015."

Yanga-Mbiwa represented France at Under-21 level and has since earned three caps for the senior team.
