Arjen Robben has joined Franck Ribery in committing his future to Bayern Munich for the 2018-19 season by penning a new one-year deal.
The 34-year-old's contract was set to expire this summer but Robben has now agreed to extend his stay at Munich for next season, taking him to a decade spent with the German giants.
Robben joined Bayern from Real Madrid back in 2009 and has won seven Bundesliga titles, four DFB-Pokals and the Champions League during his spell there.

He joins another veteran winger, Ribery, in signing on for another season along with full back Rafinha. All three players were set to leave for nothing this summer.
Robben is currently battling to be fit for the German Cup final on Saturday as he struggles to recover from a thigh muscle injury.
Jupp Heynckes' side face Eintracht Frankfurt in the Olympic Stadium in Berlin looking to complete a domestic double having clinched their sixth successive Bundesliga title with five games to spare.

They will come face-to-face with their future manager Niko Kovac on the sidelines after agreeing to appoint the Eintracht boss as Heynckes' successor for next season.
Munich suffered their first home defeat in the league in over two years on Saturday when they were beaten 4-1 by Stuttgart on the final match of the Bundesliga season.
The Germans were also dumped out of the Champions League by Robben's former club Real after suffering a 4-3 aggregate loss to the holders in the semi-final stage.
