Kim Kallstrom has become the latest senior star at Lyon to agree a contract extension with the club.

With the likes of Michel Bastos and Hugo Lloris having already committed to the Ligue 1 giants, they have continued with their efforts to tie down further key figures.

Kallstrom was happy to talk terms and he has now penned a new two-year deal, with the extension keeping the Sweden international at Stade Gerland until 2014.

His previous agreement was due to run out next summer, so Lyon have moved quickly to prevent him from leaving on a free transfer.

Kallstrom had no hesitation in signing a new deal, having thoroughly enjoyed his time with the club.

He was snapped up from Rennes in 2006 and has gone on to make 177 appearances in Ligue 1.

The 29-year-old midfielder has scored 17 goals during that time and has helped Lyon to two league titles and one French Cup success.
