Stoke City midfielder Glenn Whelan has extended his contract at the Britannia Stadium until 2018.
Whelan played in all but one of Stoke's fixtures in the Premier League last season and after the Potters paid just £500,000 for his signature in 2008, chief executive Tony Scholes has admitted that the club have got "value for money" from the Republic of Ireland international.
Scholes told the club's official website: "Glenn has been one of the mainstays of our side since his arrival and few players can have provided such value for money in the history of the Premier League.
"He remains a key figure in Mark Hughes's squad and we are delighted he has decided to extend his stay at the bet365 Stadium."
The 32-year-old has made 305 appearances in all competitions since signing from Sheffield Wednesday.
