The 29-year-old was due to be out of contract on July 1 but had already agreed to a new deal and will remain at the KCOM stadium until at least the summer of 2018.

It's an exciting time in the club's history and I'm delighted to be a part of it. My three years here have been a rollercoaster really with FA Cup finals, Europe, relegation and then promotion, but I believe there is a lot to look forward to in the next couple of years.
