La Liga By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 17/04/2019

Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak has signed a new deal with the Wanda Metropolitano outfit and he extended his deal to 2023 in a statement released by the club.

The Slovenian goalkeeper extended his deal with a two-year contract deal with the Rojiblancos.

The 26-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain but this new deal is set to increase his annual wage packet to €10m, the buyout clause of the goalkeeper has also increased from €100m to €120m in an attempt to ward off potential suitors.

Oblak joined Atletico Madrid from Benfica in 2014 with a €16m transfer fee and since then he has developed to one of the finest goalkeepers in the world.

He has been regular in the Atletico Madrid line-ups for the past four seasons.

Oblak said he was "very happy" to pledge his future to Atletico.

"I will always give my best to defend these colours with everything, I will continue to work hard," he added.

Atletico is second in the La Liga table, nine points behind Barcelona, and play Eibar on Saturday.
