Swindon Town defender Darren Ward has signed a two-year deal, keeping him at the club until 2015.

The 34-year-old joined the Robins on loan from Millwall last August and signed permanently four months later.

In his first season at the County Ground, Ward played 43 times and, after the departure of Paulo Di Canio, had a brief spell as joint caretaker-manager.

"It's been common knowledge that other clubs were interested but I want to stay," he told the club website.

In a career spanning 18 years, Ward has played for Watford, Millwall, Crystal Palace, Wolves and Swindon, as well as taking in loan spells with QPR and Charlton.

He has made a total of 528 professional appearances, scoring 19 goals.
