Dundee United captain Barry Robson has signed a new contract extension with the Scottish Premier League club.
Barry Robson has been in fine form for United this season
The 28-year-old, who joined United from Inverness Caley Thistle in 2003, has agreed new terms until May 2011.
Manager Craig Levein told the club website: "I am absolutely delighted to have secured the services of our captain and most influential player.
"I believe that Barry is already one of the best midfield players in Scotland and can become better still."
Chairman Eddie Thompson added: "I am absolutely delighted that our club captain has demonstrated his long term commitment to Dundee United in this way.
"Barry would have been free to talk to other clubs in less than a year from now and, together with the manager, we thought it was important to make every effort now to secure his long term future for the club.
"I am delighted that he readily agreed to this.
"I consider this a significant piece of business and believe that this sends out a very positive message indeed about the long term future of Dundee United."
Meanwhile, midfielder David Proctor is remaining at Tannadice after talks about a return to Inverness collapsed.
There had been suggestions of a swap deal involving Darren Dods, who has signed a pre-contract agreement with United.
But Caley Thistle were unwilling to let Dods leave before the summer.
