Stefano Pioli has signed a new deal with Bologna to 2015.

Pioli has been linked with a move away in recent weeks.

"I am very satisfied, I have always maintained that I'm happy at Bologna," said the coach.

"I'm appreciated by the club and the fans who have always stayed close to me during the difficult moments.

"I feel like I'm from Bologna and I have never experienced the feelings that I do here - not even when I was a player.

"I have no other thoughts apart from to end the season well here and start to work on the next campaign."
