Mehdi Nafti has signed a new one-year contract with relegated Birmingham City.
Manager Alex McLeish, who is looking to lead the club back into the Barclays Premier League following relegation on Sunday, said: "Mehdi has a good pedigree and is an international player.
"He is not afraid to take the ball and that's the type of player I'd like to have at Birmingham City.
"He's a great character and brings a good spirit to the dressing room.
"He trains the way he plays, he gives everything in training and everything on a matchday.
"Mehdi is the type of player that I identify with and want to bring into the club."
Young Birmingham players Jared Wilson and James McPike have both agreed new one-year contracts.
Nineteen-year-old full-back Wilson has made 10 reserve team appearances this season having come up through the youth ranks.
Striker McPike, also 19, has missed much of this season through injury.
