‘I’m very happy to sign the new deal,’ he said. ‘I have enjoyed every single minute of my time here. It’s a pleasure to be part of such an incredible club.
‘To have helped us achieve the success we have enjoyed in the past four seasons has been unforgettable and made us all hungry to look to achieve even more.
‘I would also like to thank Pep, [director of football] Txiki [Begiristain] and the coaching staff, both for the way they have helped me to develop as a player and for pushing me to continue to improve.
‘Now I just want to try and play my part in helping us be successful next season and beyond.’
