Real Sociedad ties Xabi Prieto until 2017

Real Sociedad midfielder Xabi Prieto has agreed to a four-year

contract extension that will keep him at the Basque club until the

end of the 2017 season.

The 28-year-old homegrown captain is in his eighth season with

Sociedad.

Prieto said on Sunday after signing the extension that the

chance to retire from the club ”is very exciting for me since I

have supported the team since I was a young child.”

Sociedad is two points above the drop in 15th place approaching

the midway point of the Spanish league season.
