Eldin Jakupovic has extended his stay at newly-promoted Hull City after signing a new two-year contract.
The goalkeeper has made 28 appearances for the Tigers, starting in both the semi-final and final of the Sky Bet Championship play-offs, which saw them secure promotion to the Premier League.
Jakupovic was initially offered a one-year contract but, after negotiations with the club, was given an additional 12 months.
"Eldin Jakupovic has extended his stay at the KCOM Stadium for a further two years after agreeing terms on a new deal," the club said in a statement.
"Although the club had initially exercised its option to offer the goalkeeper a one-year deal at the end of the 2015/16 season, negotiations began immediately to secure Jakupovic on a longer-term contract with a two-year deal now agreed."
The 31-year old is currently the longest-serving player for Steve Bruce's side after arriving from Greek side Aris Salonika in July 2012.
He has made a total of 28 appearances for Hull and had two loan spells at Leyton Orient during the 2013/14 season.
