Jermain Defoe has extended his stay at Sunderland until 2019 after his goals helped to keep the club in the Barclays Premier League.

The Black Cats confirmed on Thursday that the 33-year-old striker has signed a one-year contract extension, his reward for a remarkable return of 18 goals in all competitions last season in a side which struggled for much of the campaign.

Manager Sam Allardyce said: "Jermain is one of the greatest goalscorers in the history of the Premier League and is a player that every manager would want to have in their team.

"He proved that beyond doubt last season by scoring 15 league goals, he is in fantastic physical condition and we are very pleased that we have been able to extend his stay with us."
