Barcelona goalkeeper Jose Manuel Pinto has agreed a new contract with the Spanish champions to keep him at Camp Nou until June 2012.
Veteran Pinto, 35, was out of contract in the summer but he has now signed a new one-year deal to stay at Barcelona for next season.
Pinto joined Barcelona from Celta Vigo in 2008 and has played understudy to first-choice goalkeeper Victor Valdes during his time at the club.
"Barcelona are pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with Jose Manuel Pinto to renew his contract for one more season until June 30, 2012," read a statement on Barcelona's official website.
