Walter Samuel has thanked Inter for offering him the chance to continue his playing career at San Siro.
The Argentine’s deal was set to expire at the end of this month, but he’s now put pen to paper on a new agreement until 2014.
“I'm very happy to have renewed my contract for another year,” the centre-back told the club’s official website.
“Along with my teammates, I hope I can give Inter a positive year and repay the club for the faith they've show since they still believe in me.”
The South American endured an injury-hit campaign at the Meazza in 2012-13, seeing as he appeared in just 22 games. He scored one goal in the process.
Samuel, formerly of Roma, was signed in 2005 for €16m from Real Madrid.
