Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has signed a contract extension which will keep him at the Bianconeri until June 2012.

The 29-year-old Italian World Cup winner demonstrated his loyalty to the club last year by not joining the exodus of players following the club´s enforced relegation to Serie B.

Buffon joined Juventus from Parma in 2001 - commanding a world-record fee for a goalkeeper of £32 million - and had been linked with a move to AC Milan throughout the season before opting to remain with the Turin giants.
