Monaco midfielder Jaroslav Plasil has been rewarded with a contract extension.
The Czech Republic ace has signed a new deal which ties him to the Principality club until 2009.
Though Plasil does not command a regular place in the starting XI, he is a valued member of Didier Deschamps' squad.
He has spent six years at Stade Louis II and has now decided to prolong his association for a further two seasons.
Plasil recently stated a desire to play in Spain but it appears as though the 23-year-old has put a move to La Liga on hold until later in his career.
In addition, Monaco have handed a first professional contract to young striker David Gigliotti.
The forward, who made his debut last season, has inked a three-year deal after being tipped for a bright future at Stade Louis II.
