Leicester City defender Sol Bamba has signed an extended contract which keeps him at the club until June 2014.
Ivory Coast international Bamba, who joined from Hibernian in January, has been a key member of the side under manager Sven-Goran Eriksson.
The 26-year-old has been ever present in the league so far this season and Eriksson was thrilled with the deal.
"He is an important player for us and he will continue to be important in to the future," Eriksson said.
"We believe that his current form this season has shown that he is getting better and better as a player. Sol is very strong and he is popular with everyone."
