6:04 pm on 9 July 2012

The All Whites defender Ben Sigmund has committed himself to the Wellington Phoenix football club for the next three years.

The 31-year-old Sigmund had one year left on his contract, but has had that extended by two years through to the end of 2015.

Winner of the Phoenix Player of the Year award for the past two seasons, Sigmund says he had no intention of playing anywhere else providing the Wellington club still wanted him.

Sigmund arrived at the Phoenix in 2008 on a one-year contract and has gone on to play 91 times for the club.
