Linfield midfielder Jamie Mulgrew has signed a new three-year-deal with the Carling Premiership champions.
The 25-year-old pledged his future to the Windsor Park side after having trials this summer with MLS clubs Columbus Crew and Portland Timbers.
"We have respected Jamie's wishes in wanting full-time football," Blues boss David Jeffrey told the club website.
"We're delighted to have secured a player who has made a very significant contribution to our successes."
The Northern Ireland international made one appearance for Big Two rivals Glentoran before joining Linfield in 2005.
