Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has revealed his delight after Kalidou Koulibaly signed a new five-year deal with the club.
Chelsea and Everton were both strongly linked with a move for the centre-back over the summer, as he struggled to agree terms over a new deal in Naples.
However the 25-year-old decided to stay at the Stadio San Paolo and has now agreed a new deal with Napoli, to the delight of president De Laurentiis.
He posted on Twitter, saying: "I am happy to announce that Kalidou Koulibaly has renewed his contract with Napoli until 2021."
De Laurentiis had previously been upset with Koulibaly after the player said he was open to a move to the Premier League but now the defender's future has been settled.
