Motherwell midfielder Keith Lasley has committed his future to the Fir Park outfit after signing a fresh two-year deal.
The 30-year-old's days with Well had looked numbered earlier in the season after falling out of favour under ex-manager Jim Gannon.
However, he has been given a new lease of life by Craig Brown and Archie Knox and his fine play has been rewarded with new terms.
Lasley, who returned to the club in 2006 after spending two years at Plymouth, insists he never wanted to leave and is delighted his future is sorted.
"I am thrilled to get everything sorted out. I have never hidden my desire to play for this club; I love it here," he told the club's official website.
"Sure, things were hard for the first six months of this season but that has been the only time during my 10 years at this club where I haven't enjoyed coming to work each and every day.
"Hopefully, I'll be able to see out the rest of my professional career here.
"There are a few other boys who are out of contract and hopefully others will follow Stevie Hammell and I and we can keep the core of the squad together."
