Barry Opdam has extended his contract with AZ Alkmaar for the next three years.
The 30-year-old central defender is now under contract in Alkmaar until the summer of 2010.
His previous commitment was due to expire at the end of this season, but the Dutch outfit have now elected to tie him down to fresh terms.
Opdam, who has been playing for Alkmaar since 1996, has played 282 games for AZ thus far.
Having never previously plied his trade elsewhere, Opdam is expected to finish his playing career at the club in which it started.
