Midfielder Rohan Ince has put pen to paper on a new three-year contract with Championship leaders Brighton & Hove Albion.
The 22-year-old was due to be out of contract at the end of the season, but he has now committed until the summer of 2018.
Ince, who joined Brighton from Chelsea two years ago, told the club website: "I've been at Brighton for a while now and I've really tried to impress the manager, the fans and everyone at the club. Hopefully I've managed to do that and I've been rewarded with a new contract.
"But I'm not going to just stop with this contract. I want to keep improving and really push on this season and try and get as much time on the pitch as possible."
Ince is yet to start a league game for the pacesetting Seagulls so far this season, coming off the bench in all five Championship matches in August.
