Caltex Socceroos goalkeeper Danny Vukovic has been rewarded for his excellent form with a two-season contract extension at Belgian club KRC Genk.
The 33-year-old's deal was due to expire at the end of the campaign but the Pro League leaders have taken up their option to extend his stay through to June 2021.
Vukovic joined from Sydney FC in 2017 and has impressed greatly in what is his second season at the Luminus Arena.
He has appeared 37 times in all competitions and last week kept a crucial clean sheet in Genk's goalless draw away to Slavia Prague in the first leg of their Europa League last-32 tie.
Selected for each of Australia's past three major international tournaments, Vukovic has also been the bedrock for Philippe Clement's side domestically, conceding a league-low 27 goals in 26 games.
His performances have helped Genk to open an eight-point gap atop the Pro League with four matches to play before the championship-playoffs.
The former Hyundai A-League Grand Final winner celebrated the news on Twitter, writing: "Happy to announce I'll be a KRC Genk player for a further 2.5 years!
"A big thank you to the club, my team mates and our wonderful supporters!
"And most importantly to my family, without them I wouldn't be able to continue fulfilling my dreams and aspirations!!"
In a statement, Genk commended Vukovic's "very strong" season and highlighted him as an "ideal mentor" for the squad's younger glovemen.
"Danny is having a good time in Genk and also KRC Genk is satisfied with the performance of its experienced goalkeeper," the club said.
Vukovic debuted for the Caltex Socceroos in the lead-up to the FIFA World Cup in Russia and has earned three caps in total.
