BARCELONA, Spain (AP) -- Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has agreed to a four-year contract extension that will tie him to the club until 2019.

The Spain international has been an integral part of Barcelona's success, helping the club win two Champions Leagues titles and five of the past six league trophies since his arrival in 2008.

Barcelona did not release financial terms of the deal, which the club says will be signed "in the next 10 days."

Pique has made 266 appearances for Barcelona, scoring 20 goals.
