Ian Ashbee's impressive Hull City form this season has seen him rewarded with a new deal.
Ashbee, who is Hull's longest-serving playing after joining from Cambridge United in 2002, sees his current contract expire in June 2008.
Hull have been delighted with Ashbee's form following his comeback from injury and chairman Adam Pearson feels the offer is fully deserved.
"There's a deal on the table now for Ash and that will take him through another year up to 2009 - that will give him two years left rather than one," stated Pearson.
"We feel he has fully deserved it after the impact he has had on the squad and everything he has done for us since coming back from injury."
Meanwhile, the club are also hoping to tie down California-born keeper Boaz Myhill on a long-term contract.
