BARCELONA, Feb 15 (Reuters) - Barcelona announced on Thursday a three-year extension to their existing sponsorship agreement with electronics brand Beko, which will see the Turkish firm sponsor the team's training kit.

The club did not give financial information about the deal, which was unveiled by president Josep Maria Bartomeu at a news conference on Thursday, attended by Barca defender Gerard Pique.

Local media reported the deal was worth 57 million euros ($71 million).

Beko currently sponsors the sleeves of Barca's first team kit and the back of their training kit as part of a deal first signed in 2014.

The firm's name will now be front and centre of the team's training kit. ($1 = 0.8011 euros) (Reporting by Richard Martin; Editing by Toby Davis)
