Peterborough central defender Gabriel Zakuani has signed a new contract which will keep him at London Road until 2014.
Posh director of football Barry Fry said the deal for the 25-year-old could prove to be one of the best the club makes this summer.
"His passion and commitment for this club is second to none," Fry told the club's official website.
"He has played at least a dozen times when the medical staff have told him not too, but he was determined to help us.
"He was out of contract next season and that made a valuable asset to this football club very vulnerable."
