Boro goalkeeper Dimi Konstantopoulos has put pen to paper on a new one-year contract extension with the club.
The veteran keeper joined Boro as back-up in 2013 but has since gone on to make over 100 appearances for the club.
He was a prominent figure in Boro’s promotion season, keeping 22 clean sheets as Aitor Karanka’s side ended a seven-year wait for Premier League football.
The popular Greek has found first team action hard to come by since his promotion heroics, playing second fiddle to Victor Valdes, Brad Guzan and now first choice Darren Randolph.
Although he did feature under former manager Garry Monk in Carabao Cup matches against Scunthorpe, Aston Villa and Bournemouth, but is yet to play under new boss Tony Pulis.
But Dimi has penned a new deal that will keep him at the Riverside until the end of the 2018/19 season.
“It feels good,” he told Boro’s website. “I think it was the plan all along.
“I’m settled here as everyone knows. I love the club. I’ve been through a lot of things, a lot of good times. I want to help the club in progressing.”
