Birmingham City captain Stephen Carr has signed a new one-year contract at St Andrews.
The 35-year-old Irishman, who has gone from strength to strength since joining the club on a short-term deal back in 2009, has agreed fresh terms to stay in the Midlands.
Now boss Lee Clark was delighted to see Carr pen a new deal with the club.
"I'm delighted that Stephen Carr has agreed a new contract with the club as he is a very important player," he said.
"I've worked with Stephen both as a player and a coach and I know that he's not just a fantastic, international-class player but he's also a leader.
"Stephen is a major influence both on the field and in the dressing room and he'll continue as my captain this season."
Carr added: "It's good to get it sorted. I'm buzzing now and I can't wait to get back with the lads. Hopefully we'll have a successful year."
