Diabate, 23, joined Les Girondins' youth team in 2006 and has had loan spells at AC Ajaccio and Nancy.

A club statement read: "FC Girondins de Bordeaux are pleased to announce the contract extension of Cheick Diabate.

"The Mali international has signed for two more seasons. He is now under contract until June 2015 with our club."

The news comes just days after a similar deal for goalkeeper Cedric Carrasso, who extended his contract by two years to summer 2015 at the weekend.
