Andre-Pierre Gignac, former French striker, has agreed to a three-year contract extension with Tigres UANL, the Mexican club said on Friday.

The 35-year-old, who could have left Tigres as a free agent following the current Liga MX Clausura season, will now be tied to the club until June 2024.

Andre-Pierre Gignac wants to achieve even more with UANL Tigres, the club said in a statement on its official website.

Gignac has so far scored 147 goals in 250 appearances for Tigres since arriving from Marseille in 2015. During that time, he won four league titles and a CONCACAF Champions League crown.

“I gave you my word that I would stay here and the club has given me the confidence to do that,” Gignac told in a Twitter post.

Today I renew my commitment with you to win more titles, score more goals, and work even harder to proudly wear this shirt, he added.
