Martin Devaney has agreed a new contract which will keep him at Oakwell until the summer of 2011.

Speaking to the club's official site, Martin said: "I am really pleased to have signed this new contract. I have been here a while and to stay at Barnsley is fantastic for me. I could not wait to get it signed and hopefully we can all push on now to more success in the Championship.

"My time here has been very, very successful and I have really enjoyed it. We won promotion from League One to the Championship in my first season; have had two years of Championship football as well as everything that went with our great FA Cup run last year.

"Simon (Davey) has been fantastic for me and I have played a lot of football under him. You always have worries when a new manager comes in and I have seen a lot of players leave this football club but I have worked hard and this is my second new contract under Simon's management so I must be doing something right".

Barnsley manager Simon Davey added: "I am delighted to get another player tied down to a long term contract and, before he picked up his injury, Martin was really hitting form for us this season.

"Martin is a player who has all the attributes to be an excellent performer at this level and is a real match winner on his day. I am delighted to have him with us for another two-and-a-half years".

Martin joined the Reds in August 2005 from Watford and has gone on to make 149 first team appearances, netting 18 goals.
