Sevilla have agreed new contracts with three of the players who helped the club win the UEFA Cup and Copa del Rey this season.

French defender Julien Escude, 27, and Brazilian midfielder Renato Dirnei, 28, have had their contracts extended by four years, while 22-year-old Spaniard Antonio Puerta had been handed a new five-year deal.

The Andalusian club, who as well as their double cup success finished third in the Primera Liga this season, are also in discussions with other players, including captain Javi Navarro and highly-rated young winger Jesus Navas.
