Bravo extends Real Sociedad contract

Real Sociedad's Chilean goalkeeper Claudio Bravo has agreed a two-year contract extension which ties him until 2017, the Spanish club said in a statement on Friday.

"They have a project for the future which I want to be a part of and I'm very grateful," Bravo told a news conference on Friday. "It would be a dream to be able to stay here until I retire."

Bravo, 29, joined the San Sebastian-based side from Colo Colo in 2006 and has captained his country while winning more than 60 international caps.

He has been out of action since fracturing a bone in his right arm in September, but returned to training with the squad this week and could reclaim the No 1 jersey in their next La Liga outing at home against Rayo Vallecano on Monday.
