"I'm really grateful for this new deal," said the 29 year Italian centre back. "Our position last year was quite high and we are looking forward to improving next season.
"My target is that I can't wait to get back playing. I think we have a long season ahead and for me my target is to be better than last season. We finished in 11th position but very close to 8th position and we know we can do better than what we did last year.
"I am excited to show my quality on the pitch and the support is always amazing, even when I had my injury. We have got lots of experience in the team at the moment, which is very good."
