Bologna striker Marco Di Vaio has agreed to prolong his stay with the club for another two years.
The 32-year-old is currently on loan from Genoa but both clubs have agreed to let the front-man stay at the Stadio Renato Dall'Ara.
The former Juventus ace has just recorded his best ever season in Serie A, scoring 24 goals in 37 appearances, and just missing out on the top scorer award by one goal, won by Inter's Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Di Vaio's form last term has seen him rumoured to be on the verge of an Italy recall, with his last outing coming in 2004, while a move to other clubs had also been mooted.
Di Vaio scored more than half of Bologna's Serie A goals this term and almost singlehandedly saved them from the drop and an immediate return to the second tier.
Meanwhile manager Giuseppe Papadopulo has also been rewarded for guiding the club to safety, after replacing Sinisa Mihajlovic at the helm in mid-April, by signing a new one-year rolling contract.
