Auxerre signs Ndinga to new contract

Auxerre signed midfielder Delvin Ndinga to year deal, locking up the Lyon target through the summer of 2015.

Ndinga, 23, was the target of an $11.3 transfer bid from Lyon, but the Congo international decided to commit his future to Auxerre.

"Despite my wish to return to the Champions League with another club, I decided to put stability and my family life in Auxerre first and sign for four years," Ndinga said.

"My ambitions remain intact, to help re-establish Auxerre among the top French clubs and in the hunt for European football, and to help boost Congo's image at international level."
