Ligue 1 - Barthelme pens Lorient deal
Lorient midfielder Maxime Barthelme has signed a three-year extension to his contract.
His existing deal was set to expire this summer but he is now tied down to the club until June 2015.
"This year he pushed on a touch, particularly with his League Cup performance against Lyon," coach Christian Gourcuff said.
"He must reproduce this form regularly to establish himself. For us he is a good player and the club is ready to give him more time to develop."
Having spent last season on loan at Paris FC, Barthelme broke into the first team this campaign and made nine appearances.
