The Primera outfit also have the option of a further year's extension should they decide to retain the player after that date.
The 27-year-old is a Sociedad youth product having climbed through the ranks at the club.
De Paula has struggled to make an impact with La Liga high-fliers this term, making just seven substitute appearances during the club's highly-successful campaign.
The terms of the new contract are thought to be less lucrative than the player's previous deal, but De Paula insisted his main intention was to remain with the San Sebastian-based club.
