Notts County midfielder Neal Bishop has agreed a new two-year deal, to keep him at Meadow Lane until 2013.
The former Barnet midfielder, who on Tuesday was named the supporters' and players' player of the year, was already on a deal running until 2012.
Boss Martin Allen told the club website: "He has not been fit for four or five weeks but he has continued to lead the team and been superb."
The 27-year-old had a hernia operation on Tuesday.
He had played the last few weeks of the season with the injury and delayed surgery until the Magpies were safe from the drop.
