Na`Vi reach two-year contract extension agreements with trio
Natus Vincere have announced that they have reached an agreement with three of their players to have their contracts extended by two years.
Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev has already put pen-to-paper on his new deal with Na`Vi, while Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev and Egor "flamie" Vasilyev are due to sign their new contracts on December 15, when the team begin a bootcamp.
The Ukrainian organisation added that Denis "electronic" Sharipov is also under a contract until 2019, having signed a two-year deal when he joined the team, last month. No mention was made about the contractual situation of team captain Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko, who re-joined Natus Vincere in August following a year-long spell on Gambit.
The announcement finally puts the rumours about s1mple's future to bed after the 20-year-old had claimed during a Twitch broadcast that he was unsure where he would be playing in 2018.
"I am very glad to sign the new long-term contracts with Ioann, Oleksandr and Egor," Na`Vi CEO Evgeniy Zolotarev told the organisation's website.
"I have faith in the potential of the new roster. Cheer for NAVI!"
