Bruce Djite has become the latest player to commit his future to Adelaide United, agreeing to a new two-year contract with the Reds.

Djite-s new deal comes after he spent two years at the Reds between 2006 and 2008 before trying his luck overseas, with stints in Turkey and China, followed by the now defunct Gold Coast United.

The 25-year-old has scored 22 goals in 75 games of Hyundai A-League appearances and said the decision to stick with United was an easy one.

“I look at the squad now and I remember welcoming guys like Eugene (Galekovic) and Cassio with open arms when they first came to the club, so obviously I love the place.

"The fans have been fantastic, the team is superb and that-s a big thing, when you-ve got so many good players you want to be part of that,” Djite said.

“Having good players attracts good players as well. I think we can achieve some special things in the next few years and I think we-re definitely on the right track.”

“If I-m going to stay in the A-League I think this the club to be at.

“I still think there-s a lot more to come and hopefully I-ll hit my best within these next two years,” Djite said.

Reds boss John Kosmina said he was pleased to have the striker committed to a long-term deal.

“He-s been an asset for the club and a bit of an unsung hero,” Kosmina said.

“I think he-s matured as a person a hell of a lot since he first arrived at the club as a 20 year old, he-s got good leadership skills and I still think his best football is in front of him.”
