Ryan Taylor has signed a new contract at Newcastle United, committing his future to the club until 2015.
The 27-year-old, who has featured in both defence and midfield for the Magpies this term, has penned a two-year extension to his current deal.
Taylor joined Newcastle in early 2009 from Wigan Athletic and has gone on to make over 70 appearances for the club.
He has now been rewarded for his recent form with a new deal and is just the latest player to commit his future to the club, following on from Tim Krul and Fabricio Coloccini, who agreed new deals last weekend.
"I'm over the moon. It's been a quiet one to get done and didn't take long," he told the club's official website.
"I stated not so long ago that I would love to stay here, and that has always been the case. Playing every week helps, and having a good manager has been a massive plus for me as well.
"When the gaffer came in first of all I was injured, so I've had to prove myself to him. But this season has been great for me on a personal note, and to have played every Premier League game bar two or three then it's been a great season."
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew added: "I am delighted to secure a contract extension for Ryan.
"He has been outstanding for me this season wherever I have asked him to play.
"Ryan is a fantastic player who is firmly in the hearts of our fans, not only for his derby winner against Sunderland but also because of some excellent performances in the Newcastle shirt.
"On the back of agreeing new deals last week with Tim Krul and Fabricio Coloccini, this gives us a huge boost going into the final 11 games, and hopefully Ryan can help us make this a truly memorable season."
