Earlier this month, it had seemed the Argentine defender would be on his way - but club president Jose Maria Del Nido has persuaded him to stay put.

"It was very fast and incredible," Fazio told Marca. "I had several options to leave a few months ago and, to be honest, I saw myself more out of the club than in.

"However, I had a meeting with the president after returning from holiday and now there are no problems."
