Norwich City captain Adam Drury has signed a new four-year deal with the Canaries.
The left-back, 28, is now tied to Carrow Road until the summer of 2011.
Should he see out the duration of his new contract, it will take Drury's spell at Carrow Road past the 10-year mark since signing from Peterborough United in March 2001.
"I'm absolutely delighted," he told the club's official website. "I'd always made it pretty clear that I wanted to stay here. The Club offered me a contract and there was never a doubt in my mind that I wanted to stay because I want to help the Club move forward into what's going to be a new era now.

"I think everyone knows this season has been a big disappointment. But it's out of the way now and we need to move on to next season and get ready for that and look forward to it."
It's been a stop-start season for Drury, a player previously famed for his consistency during his time with the Canaries. Two ankle operations, the loss of three teeth, a back injury and - most recently at the weekend - a neck problem have affected his campaign. And Drury hoped for better next year.

"From that point of view it's not been a great season because unfortunately I've had both ankles operated on, lost three teeth and obviously did my neck the other the day, so you don't really get any rhythm in your game and it's hard to get consistency.
"I'm looking forward to a good rest in the summer, a chance to recuperate and go again next year and hopefully we can achieve a lot more."
