The club announced on Thursday that Luisinho is extending his link with Deportivo until 2018. The player said that the negotiations lasted since last season and expressed his satisfaction for staying in A Coruña.

Luis Carlos Correia Pinto ‘Luisinho’ will continue at Deportivo until June of 2018. The club and the Portuguese player signed a contract extension on Thursday. He arrived on last season signing a deal that was lasting until 2016.

Depor didn’t pay anything for the player, though SL Benfica kept the 50% of the player’s rights. Neither the club nor the player clarified if this issue continues the same. The player addressed the media on Friday and talked about what led him to sign the extension.

“I’m content. This something we talked for a while. When we clinched the promotion we started the talks and we reached the agreement yesterday. The club and the president have made an effort and I’m glad to be here. I am content with the club and that’s the reason why I signed the renewal. I rely in this club and also in me. I fell a special love for the club and fir the fans.”

Luisinho has been a fixed starter with both Fernando Vázquez and Víctor Fernández, either performing as a left-back defender or as a left winger. He began the Segunda season 2013/14 as the fixed starter at the left side of the defense, the Portuguese only performed at that position in 12 of his 31 league appearances, because later he was moved forward after the exit of Culio.

The exit of Fernández Vázquez didn’t rest importance to his presence, because Víctor Fernández considers him as an important player at the squad; actually Luisinho is currently the player at the first team with more minutes and only one of the three men at Depor that have participated in all the thirteen matchdays in liga (the other two are Medunjanin and Cavaleiro).
