Doncaster Rovers extend Pascal Chimbonda deal

Chimbonda has been out injured with a hip problem

Doncaster Rovers have extended the contract of defender Pascal Chimbonda until the end of the season.

The 32-year-old arrived at the Keepmoat Stadium in September as the first signing for manager Dean Saunders.

Since then the one-time France international has made five appearances, although he has been ruled out by a hip injury for the last month.

"The aim is to stay in the Championship," Chimbonda told the club website.

He added: "If we do that then we can achieve big things."

Chimbonda was one of a number of signings made by Saunders, along with El-Hadji Diouf, Habib Beye and Herita Ilunga.

"There's a lot who've followed me in that are quality like Diouf and Ilunga, and I want to stay with them," Chimbonda said.
