Eintracht Frankfurt defender Chris has penned a new deal at the Commerzbank Arena.
The 29-year-old Brazilian had been expected to leave Frankfurt this summer after reported interest from Bundesliga rivals Wolfsburg and Stuttgart.
But he has now agreed a three-year extension keeping him with the club until 2012.
"I feel very much at home in Frankfurt and am delighted that things have worked out with the extension," he told Kicker.
Chris joined Frankfurt from FC St Pauli in 2003 and has made a total of 90 league appearances for the club.
