Chivas academy product Gilberto ‘Tiba’ Sepúlveda has reportedly been tied down to a new contract.

According to ESPN, the 22-year old’s deal was extended on Tuesday to ensure his long-term future with the club.

“How long ‘Tiba’ will continue to be a rojiblanco for is still unknown,” ESPN claimed. “However, the intention of the board is to avoid, at all costs, the beginning of negotiations that would allow him to depart from the club for free in the summer.”

Gilberto would’ve been free to listen to offers from other clubs at the end of the 2022 Clausura as his current deal is set to expire at the end of the year.

Chivas will have the chance to bounce back from their 2-1 defeat at Pachuca (where the young defender scored a fluke own-goal) when they host Querétaro on Saturday.
