Salford City have announced that Ibou Touray has signed a two-year contract extension to keep him at the club until 2023.

The full-back joined the club in May 2017 and he is currently the Ammies longest serving player.

Since joining the club, Touray has had great success having won back-to-back promotions and the Papa John’s Trophy in 2021.

Commenting on his contract extension, the 26-year-old said: “I’m very happy to be carrying on my time at Salford, I’ve been here for four years now and it’s always nice to be rewarded for hard work!

“The fans have been great to me, I feel like I’ve earned their respect and hopefully I can continue to do that.

“Their support is massive and always helps, so we’re looking forward to playing in front of them again soon.

“Hopefully we can do better again next season, kick on again and I can be a part of it so yeah I’m really happy to still be here.”

Manager Gary Bowyer admits he is “absolutely delighted” that Touray has committed his future to the club.

Bowyer said: “We are absolutely delighted that Ibby has extended his stay here, his performances last season were very good and I believe there is still lots more to come from him.

“He has been at Salford for a long time and has a real connection and affinity with the club and its supporters.

“That is really important to have because he understands what it means to the fans, and demonstrates that with his performances on the pitch and conduct away from it.”
