Leeds defender Paddy Kisnorbo has given the club a major boost by signing a new two-year contract.
The Australia international enjoyed a clean sweep at the club's Player of the Year awards in 2010, but was sidelined for almost 14 months following an Achilles injury.
The 30-year-old featured for the final 10 minutes of last season, coming off the bench in the 2-1 win at QPR, and has continued his rehab over the summer.
Leeds boss Simon Grayson said: "We're delighted to get things finalised with Paddy. He's had a tough time, but we know what he is all about and what he brings to the team.
"He is a very important member of our squad.
"The deal shows the commitment of both the club and Paddy and it's great to have him back with everyone after being out for so long."
