New deal for Rubén Castro

Rubén Castro and Betis have reached an agreement to amplify the player's current contract by two years, taking him to June 2019. The new agreement will be made official in due course. Betis had initially proposed a one-year extension with the option of a second year based on performance and objectives-related criteria. But that idea was rejected in favour of a straight, two-year renewal.

Under his previous arrangement with the club, the 35-year-old would have been able to begin negotiations with other clubs in January as his contract was due to expire in June next year.
