The 36-year-old has had a fine campaign since returning to the club from Hannover and has opted to extend his stay for an extra season, signing a deal until the summer of 2005.
Van Hintum has hinted he would like to end his career at the club and this could be his final contract before he hangs up his boots.
NEC Nijmegen have had no such luck on the contract front, as keeper Dennis Gentenaar has opted to reject their latest offer - saying he is ready to consider his options.
The 28-year-old has been linked with a move to PSV Eindhoven as a replacement for Ronald Waterreus, and it could be his head has been turned by talk of a move to a big club.
Utrecht are no nearer to signing Prince Rajcomer from Fortuna Sittard, with the two clubs still haggling over a price for the forward.
Groningen have been dealt a blow with the news that Brian Pinas will not play again this term.
The 25-year-old was forced off during Groningen's clash with Ajax at the weekend and tests have revealed a minor crack on the left winger's knee cap.
Doctors do not believe he will require surgery, but have said he will not be fit to resume training for at least six weeks.
