Scotland international Shaun Maloney has signed a new two-and-a-half-year contract with Wigan Athletic.
He will stay at the club until at least 2015.
The midfielder has made 33 league appearances for Latics since arriving from Celtic in August 2011.
He made his return to the international scene in May 2012 when Scotland faced the USA.
So far this season he has made 20 starts in the Barclays Premier League and scored two goals, against Stoke City and Norwich City.
Wigan manager Roberto Martinez said: "From the first day he arrived his professionalism and determination to succeed has been outstanding and an example for the younger members of the group to follow.
"Shaun is one of the most technically gifted British players that you will find, but on top of his style and footballing flair his work-rate and purpose in his performances make him a key member of our future at Wigan Athletic.
“I’m sure the fans are looking forward to watching him continue to enjoy his football at Latics for a long time.”
