Blackburn utility man Brett Emerton has signed a new four-year contract.
The deal will keep the Australian, who joined Rovers from Feyenoord in 2003, at Ewood Park until 2012.
Chairman John Williams told the club's website: 'This is great news for the club.
'Brett has been an excellent servant over the last five years and we are delighted to have agreed a deal which keeps him here for another four years.
'He's a very willing member of the squad and a real club man.'
