Queens Park Rangers have announced that veteran goalkeeper Radek Cerny has signed a one-year contract extension at Loftus Road.
The 38-year-old has spent the last four years with the capital club, with the last of those coming in the Premier League.
The Czech accepts that he is considered to be a back-up option, with Paddy Kenny QPR's undisputed number one at present.
There is a chance he could fall even further down the pecking order this summer, with Mark Hughes reported to be keeping a close eye on a number of potential keeping targets.
Cerny is delighted to have agreed fresh terms, though, and is looking forward to forming part of the QPR squad in 2012/13 - having made six unexpected appearances last term as a result of untimely knocks suffered by his rivals.
"I'm pleased. At my age, if I'm offered a one-year deal, that's perfect for me," he told the club's official website.
"It's fantastic to still be involved with the Premier League."
Meanwhile, Bruno Perone has left QPR after seeing his one-year contract come to an end.
The 24-year-old linked up with the Rs last summer after impressing during pre-season, but moves on after making just two first-team appearances.
Perone will play no part in QPR's future - a future they hope will be bright.
Having returned to the top flight for 2011/12, they have now voiced their desire to move from their Loftus Road home - the smallest ground in the Premier League - and bring in extra revenue.
"To have a stand-alone football stadium that only hosts 19 home domestic matches a season would probably not make the numbers work," chief executive Philip Beard told the London Evening Standard.
"What is important is that it is the home of QPR but it will need to have facilities to do other things as well.
"A full-on ground-share is more challenging, but I am hoping to emulate an entertainment destination model where you roll the pitch away and use it for other things.
"Look at (Arsenal's) Emirates Stadium. They hosted Coldplay for three nights - that is the sort of activity you need to host to generate the revenues to make the club sustainable and ultimately invest in the team going forward."
He added: "The criteria is that we need to find somewhere that hopefully isn't too far from Loftus Road.
"Our fanbase is a very passionate, loyal and local one. We need to stay in the area if we can. That is almost a must."
