Energie Cottbus striker Francis Kioyo has agreed a new contract extension with the Bundesliga new boys.
The 26-year-old put pen to paper on a new two-year contract on Wednesday keeping him at the Friendship Stadium until June 2009.
"Francis Kioyo is a very important player in our team. We have a lot of faith in him and that's why we wanted to tie him to the club as soon as possible," said Energie general manager Steffen Heidrich.
Kioyo scored 8 goals in 26 Bundesliga Zwei appearances last season, but will miss Energie's first five matches of the new season due to suspension.
