Under his previous deal, Oblak was tied to Atletico until 2020 with a £35 million release clause, with his new terms securing his services for a further season.
Atletico, who are due to move to a new home -- Estadio La Peineta -- in 2017, sit second in the table. They trail Barcelona by three points in the race for the title and are a point ahead of city rivals Real Madrid.
Oblak has conceded just 11 goals in 23 league games this season, the best record in the division.

A statement on Atletico's website confirmed: "The midfielder Thomas Teye Partey was unable to complete the morning's [Tuesday] training session and retired before it was over.
"After undergoing a first examination in Majadahonda's FREMAP Clinic, the medical report of Atletico's midfielder indicates that he suffers a grade I injury of the vastus medialis muscle in the right thigh."
