Bristol Rovers have confirmed that midfielder Chris Lines has signed a new contract with the club.

After returning to Rovers, initially on loan in March 2015, he played 36 times as Rovers won promotion last season.

"Chris has played at a higher level. We're delighted to have him," chairman Steve Hamer told BBC Radio Bristol.

Of Darrell Clarke's first-team squad, 12 players have now signed new deals ahead of the 2016-17 season.
