Goalkeeper Beto commits future to Sevilla, signs new deal

Goalkeeper Beto has signed a new contract with Europa League holders Sevilla to end speculation about his future.

The 32-year-old's existing deal was due to expire in the summer, but the Portugal international has agreed a new two-year deal with an option for a further season.

"I signed where I always wanted to be," Beto told the club's website. "I had other choices. The negotiations were very long, but ultimately this was the will of both parties."

Beto first arrived at Sevilla on loan from Braga in early 2013 before making the move permanent in the summer, having established himself as the club's first-choice stopper.

He saved spot-kicks from Benfica's Oscar Cardozo and Rodrigo when the Europa League final went to penalties last summer, with Sevilla winning the shoot-out 4-2.
