Bartra pens new Barca deal

Defender Marc Bartra has signed a contract extension with Barcelona to keep him at the club until June 2017.

The 23-year-old centre back, who made the step up to the first team last season following three years at Barcelona B, now has a buy-out clause of 25million euros.

Bartra made his full international debut for Spain in a friendly against Equatorial Guinea last November and has won 37 caps at age-group level.
