Lucio signs new inter Milan deal

Brazilian defender Lucio has signed a new contract with Italian giants Inter Milan.

The new deal will keep the highly-rated defender at the Giuseppe Meazza until the summer of 2014.

Lucio’s previous deal was due to expire in the summer of 2012, but the 33-year-old admitted earlier this year that he was keen on an extension.

Lucio has been a key player for Inter Milan since joining the club from Bayern Munich in the summer of 2009.
