Siena midfielder Simone Vergassola has signed a new contract.

The club captain, now 36-years-old, has put pen to paper on a fresh deal that will now run to June 2014.

"It is a great joy for me to continue defending the colours of this shirt and a great honour," he said.

"I'd like to thank the club for giving me their faith. I'll certainly work hard in an effort to pay them back for that."
