Eljero Elia extends contract with Feyenoord until 2018

Feyenoord have announced that Eljero Elia will remain with the club until 2018.

The 29-year-old joined the Eredivisie outfit in the summer of 2015 and made 31 league appearances last term.

The winger's existing deal ran until 2017 but the former Werder Bremen and Southampton man has agreed to extend his stay for a further year.

Elia becomes the fifth Feyenoord player to agree new terms this summer, after teammates Kenneth Vermeer, Karim El Ahmadi, Tonny Vilhena and Dirk Kuyt.
