Boaz Myhill has pledged his future to Hull City by inking a new three-year contract with the Tigers.
The 26-year-old Wales international goalkeeper has made more than 250 appearances for City following his £50,000 switch from Aston Villa in December 2003.
City manager Phil Brown is delighted with Myhill's decision to remain at the KC Stadium, saying: "Over the last two or three years, I've seen that Boaz Myhill's a Premier League goalkeeper, there's no doubt about that.
"He stepped up to the plate very admirably last season, albeit in difficult circumstances with Matt Duke breathing down his neck all year.
"I know 'Dukey' got himself into the first team for six or seven games and that must have surprised 'Bo' at the time. But he's come back stronger.
"He's still pushing Wayne Hennessey hard in the Welsh squad and that's healthy for us as well. I'm delighted to get 'Bo' tied up to a decent contract long-term.
"Talks are in the pipeline and it's important that we get a settled group this season. There will be one or two more announcements in the near future."
