Bath have announced that forward Matt Garvey has signed a new contract with the Aviva Premiership club.
Garvey, who is currently sidelined after suffering an injury in January, joined Bath from London Irish during the 2013-14 season.
The 29-year-old, who can play at lock and in the back-row, has made 91 appearances for the club.
"I couldn't be happier to have extended my time here at Bath, and there wasn't really any hesitation," said Garvey.
"I really enjoy playing for this club, and my family are really settled in the area.
"It's the light at the end of the tunnel after going through my rehabilitation in the last few months. I'm excited to getting back on the field and hopefully playing a part in the tail end of the season."
Bath director of rugby Todd Blackadder added: "To have Matt committing to Bath is great news for the club.
"He is a huge competitor, an inspiring leader and an invaluable squad member on and off the field.
"Matt has shown great support for his team-mates during his time on the sidelines, which is a testament to his character."
