Preston North End captain Tom Clarke has signed a new two-year deal at Deepdale.
The skipper has committed his future to the club, signing a new contract which will keep him at the club until at least the summer of 2020.
The 30-year-old made his return from injury in November after seven months out, and became a key player in defence, making 20 appearances in all competitions as the club finished seventh in the Championship.
Clarke also contributed at the other end of the pitch, scoring two crucial goals in the wins away at Burton Albion and Cardiff City in December.
Speaking of extending his stay at Deepdale, after joining the club in 2013, Tom said: "I'm over the moon to get it done, now I can focus on a good pre-season, a pre-season that I didn't have last season with this manager.
"Since I first joined the club we have improved every season and it's exciting to see what the future holds. Next season is going to be another tough season but it's a season that we will be ready for."
