Portuguese international midfielder Miguel Danny has extended his contract with Russian reigning champions Zenit St Petersburg for another four years.

The 27-year-old was lured by Zenit from Russian Premier League side Dynamo Moscow in 2008 in the country's new record transfer deal of $30 million, and went on to win the UEFA Supercup with his new side in the first season.

After bouncing back from injury, Danny was last season instrumental in helping lead Zenit to the Russian league title and Russian Cup, and was named Russia's player of the year.
