Birmingham extend deal for veteran defender Carr

Birmingham defender Stephen Carr has signed a new one-year contract to keep him at the Championship club for the 2012/13 season. The 35-year-old Republic of Ireland right-back will also remain captain of the Blues.

"It's good to get it sorted. I'm buzzing now, I can't wait to get restarted with the lads," said Carr.

"I'm delighted that Stephen Carr has agreed a new contract with the club as he is a very important player," added new boss Lee Clark.

"I've worked with Stephen both as a player and a coach and I know that he's not just a fantastic, international-class player but he's also a leader.

"Stephen is a major influence both on the field and in the dressing room and he'll continue as my captain this season."

"I always wanted to re-sign once everything was right for me and I'm happy to be extending my stay here," Carr continued.

"At my stage of my career, I have to be enjoying it and I know what I'm going to get now with Lee Clark because I know what he will bring from my days with him at Newcastle."
