The 27-year-old goalkeeper joined the Spanish football club in 2016 from Atletico Madrid.
Born in Canada, Bounou began his professional career with La Liga’s giants following a transfer from Wydad de Casablanca (WAC) in June 2012.

Bounou was also one of the 23 Moroccan players who participated in the World Cup.
This season is Bounou’s third season in Girona, “where he played a total of 68 matches,” added Girona.
