Luc Steins extends his contract with Paris Saint-Germain Handball
Paris Saint-Germain Handball are pleased to announce the extension of Luc Steins' contract by three seasons. The centre-half is now linked to the Club until 30 June 2024.
After arriving at the Club last November following Nikola Karabatic's injury, the Dutch international has already scored 44 goals in 13 games in all competitions for Les Rouge et Bleu.
Voted best player of the 2016-2017 Proligue season with Massy, Luc Steins joined Toulouse in the summer of 2019 after a spell at Tremblay.
The player, who recently turned 26, has 68 caps and 199 goals for the Dutch national team.
"I feel particularly good in Paris," said Luc Steins. "The club has given me a very warm welcome and put me in the best possible conditions. In a few months, I feel I have reached a new level in my career. The fact that I'm playing every day with this team and under Raul Gonzalez is a great opportunity. I am honoured to be able to continue the adventure and I would like to thank Fénix Toulouse for making this possible. I am now here for three more years and with the ambition to win as many titles as possible. "
"Since his arrival four months ago, Luc Steins has showcased a formidable capacity for adaptation," reacted Paris Saint-Germain General Manager Jean-Claude Blanc. "In an essential position, he quickly won unanimous approval within the squad and his impact on our team's play was immediate. His performances and his state of mind convinced us to offer him a contract extension. He has all the qualities to shine in the Parisian shirt and be a major asset for the Club in the months and years to come. "
