Paris Saint-Germain defender Thiago Silva has extended his contract with the French champions by a year, tying him to the club until 2018.

PSG announced the deal Thursday and president Nasser Al-Khelaifi says Silva ''symbolizes PSG's desire to construct one the most successful teams in Europe.''

Silva joined PSG from AC Milan last year and swiftly became a key player for the French club, making 22 league appearances to help PSG win its first league title since 1994.

The 28-year-old Silva also captained Brazil to the Confederations Cup in June.

The news comes a day after the announcement that Italy midfielder Marco Verratti has also extended his contract at PSG until 2018.
