Ipswich skipper Carlos Edwards has signed a new one-year deal to keep him at the club until summer 2013.
The Trinidad and Tobago international has made over 150 appearances for the Tractor Boys since joining from Sunderland in 2009.
"I'm delighted to be staying here. My family are happy here and this is where I want to see my children grow up," he told the club's official website.
"I had a word with the manager and the chief executive and told them I would like to stay, then it was just a case of sorting out a deal.
"Throughout my 13 or so years in English football, I've been moving up and down the country - I've reached a stage in my career where I'm settled and want to stay put.
"Everything is all done and dusted. I've signed the contract and I'm delighted to be staying at Ipswich. It feels like home."
