France international Fofana extends with Clermont

France international backliner Wesley Fofana has extended his contrac with Top 14 Rugby Club Clermont until 2019 according to his club.

“This extension was one of my priorities and I’m delighted to be able to build around a player like him,” declared Clermont manager Franck Azema.

He added: “For the club this sends out a strong message of continuity and of what we are looking for on the pitch, and also for the ambitions that we have and will have in the years to come.”

The Paris-born 27-year-old operates at centre or wing. He made his international debut in 2012 and has been at Clermont since 2008, helping the side win the French championship in 2010.

He was injured in France’s 20-13 defeat against Wales in early March, his 33rd cap, and missed the remaining Six Nations games against Italy and England.

Clermont host English side Saracens in the European Rugby Champions Cup semi-final on Saturday.
