Veteran left-back Patrice Evra has signed a one-year contract renewal with Juventus until June 2017, the Serie A champions confirmed on Monday.

The deal also includes the option of extending his stay for a further season.

In a statement on their official website, Juve said of Evra: "His countless experience on football’s biggest of stages has been an invaluable element in the Bianconeri’s overall development into one of the major forces in the European game."
