Two days after French central defender Timothée Pembélé made his debut as a starter against FC Girondins de Bordeaux, the 18-year-old signed his first professional contract with Paris Saint-Germain, thus extending his stay at the club until June 2024, according to Le Parisien.
Both the capital club youth product and management had already agreed on a contract since late September, where the player was among PSG’s youth prospects who reached the semi-finals of the U-17 World Cup last year with France. Previously, he was out of contract in June 2021, but Pembélé chose to continue the adventure with PSG.
L’Equipe also had news last month about the teenager prolonging his stay with PSG in October, but no contract extension announcement surfaced until now. Pembélé is part of the age group of Tanguy Kouassi, Adil Aouchiche, and Arnaud Kalimuendo, with two of those deciding to venture elsewhere for playing time. Meanwhile, Kalimuendo is on loan at RC Lens, Pembélé is choosing to remain in Paris.
