Óscar Duarte renews at Balaídos

The Costa Rican defender Óscar Duarte has reached twenty-seven official matches with Levante this season in Vigo tonight against Celta and, in this way, renews his contract with the Valencian club until June 2022.

Duarte had a clause in his contract that if he participated at least 45 minutes in sixty percent of Levante’s official matches during the season, he would extend his relationship for another year.

With his title tonight against Celta, the 31-year-old Costa Rican player has already played more than 45 minutes in 22 First Division games and 5 in the Copa del Rey.

However, the Costa Rican could leave without paying any penalty to Levante if at the end of the season he presents a contract offer from another team and the Valencian club does not match that offer, both in the duration and in the economic amounts of the proposal.

Duarte arrived at Levante in 2019 after ending his contract at Espanyol and in his first campaign he only played nine games between the League and the Copa del Rey.
