Kidderminster Harriers midfielder Aman Verma has signed a new season-long deal with the Conference Premier club.
Verma, 27, returned to Aggborough for a second spell with the club on a non-contract deal from Corby Town in March.
He only made one start in four appearances for Harriers.
But he was part of a team who lost just once in 13 matches under new boss Gary Whild - and the former Leicester City youngster is deemed to have done enough to warrant the offer of a contract.
"I felt even though his chances in the team were limited, he still gave a very good account of himself," said Whild.
"I've known Aman for a long time and was pleased to be able to bring him back. His attitude is first-class, he's versatile and he'll give us more competition."
Of the seven out-of-contract Harriers players who were offered new deals, the only one still to sign is striker Amari Morgan-Smith.
But Verma's signature now gives Whild 19 players in his squad as Harriers prepare for a renewed assault on the Conference Premier title next season.
