Motherwell FC is delighted to confirm defender Cédric Kipré has extended his Fir Park contract by an extra year.
The former PSG and Leicester City defender has made an impressive start to life in North Lanarkshire, posting a number of man-of-the-match outings as the Steelmen have recorded six wins in the opening eight matches.
The 20-year old had initially signed for one year, but has already extended that by a further year, until the summer of 2019.
Kipré said: “I’m very happy here and to be honest I was surprised to sign a new deal so quickly.
“It makes it better that people around the club are very happy with me and the fans are as well – so that pushes me to do my best.

“I want to make sure I stay in the team and do my very best every week. I speak with the manager a lot and what I like about him is that he takes care of everyone, so I look forward to working with him for another season.”
‘Well boss Stephen Robinson added: “We’re absolutely delighted Cédric has signed an extended deal as his progress so far has exceeded our expectations.
“We brought him to the club after seeing potential in him, given he is still just 20-years old, but he has really taken to life in Scotland and is enjoying himself.
“The key for Cédric is to continue to improve, continue to show the same sort of progress and if he does that, he’ll have an extremely bright future in the game.”
