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'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."
