The winger wrote on twitter: ‘Thank you all for your messages. Looking forward to stay with the Yellow Army until 2020’
Aged 31, Abendanon was French champion last season with Clermont, but was linked with a potential move to big spenders Bristol.
Clermont Director Franck Azéma said on the club’s website : “This is good news, the game that Nick practices fit perfectly with the idea of Rugby that we do with my staff.
‘After many years of fidelity with Bath, Nick is doing the same thing with us. This proves the character and values of this player but also his well-being, here in Auvergne where he perfectly integrated.
‘Since his arrival, he has taken his place both in the field but also in the locker room where his leadership is growing. For some seasons, he has also shown an interesting versatility by being able to evolve with the same level of performance both on the wing and the rear.
‘We are very happy to be able to keep a boy and a player of this quality in our workforce for the coming seasons . ”
