Barnsley defender Paul Reid has signed a new deal to stay at Oakwell.
The Tykes skipper has inked a two-year deal to keep him at The Championship new boys until 2008.
Reid revealed he had rejected offers from other clubs to stay with Barnsley.
"There was never any doubt that I wanted to stay at the club even when I was offered more lucrative contracts elsewhere," Reid told the club's official website.
"I'm very happy my future is now sorted and I get the chance to lead Barnsley out as a Championship team.
"I hope I'll be the first of many of the promotion-winning side to re-sign, it's very important we keep this side together."
One player who could be on his way out of Oakwell is Stephen McPhail.
The Irishman's current deal expires later this month and although he has been offered a contract extension he has yet to sign anything.
Reports suggest Cardiff are planning a move for the former Leeds man and that they are hoping to lure him to Ninian Park on a free transfer.
