HAMILTON ACADEMICAL have announced that striker Alexandre D'Acol has signed a new contract for the 2016/17 season.

The 29-year-old arrived at Accies as a free agent last summer but struggled to make an impression in his debut season, failing to score in 15 appearances.

Despite his poor record in front of goal, the club announced that he has extended his stay at New Douglas Park in time for the new campaign.

Sao Paulo-born D'Acol began his career in Brazil before a lengthy spell in Greek football, where he made his name by netting 25 times in 72 games for GS Kallithea.
