Cardiff City defender Joe Bennett has signed a new contract at the club until 2021.
The 28-year-old was a mainstay in the side last season, making 38 league appearances as Cardiff won promotion to the Premier League.
"I'm really happy. It got sorted out very quickly, so now I can just concentrate on my football and hopefully having a good season," Bennett said.
"I think we've got a good squad and the manager has signed some good, young and hungry players. There is no pressure on us really and we can just go out and enjoy it.
"I just can't wait to get the season going. It will be nice to meet the new lads, hopefully have a good pre-season down in Cornwall and then get stuck into it."
Bennett signed for the Bluebirds in 2016 from Aston Villa after loan spells at Brighton, Bournemouth and Sheffield Wednesday.
