Bolton defender Andy O'Brien has signed a contract extension which will keep him at the Reebok Stadium until 2011.

The 29-year-old centre-back, who joined from Portsmouth in the summer of 2007, said: "I'm eternally grateful for the opportunity that Bolton gave me.

"The way the supporters, the manager Gary Megson and the players have treated me has made me enjoy my football as much as I ever have done.

"I'm delighted to stay and there's plenty of hard work ahead of me now."

O'Brien has started all seven matches in the league for the Trotters this season, and also featured in the club's League Cup defeat to Northampton in August.

"From my point of view, I'm happy at Bolton so if they were happy to keep me then there was never a problem," he added. "I'll continue to work hard and hopefully we'll pick up results."
