Christian Gentner will be staying at Union Berlin for the 2020/21 season, the club have announced.
The 34-year-old's deal expired at the end of June, but he has now signed an extension with the German capital club.
"I quickly felt at home in Berlin and was welcomed with open arms at Union," said Gentner, who left Stuttgart to join Union after their promotion to the Bundesliga last summer.
"As a team, we played a strong first Bundesliga season and developed enormously. It was clear to me that I wanted to continue playing professional football, and I'm looking forward to continuing to do so for Union Berlin. The challenge of keeping Union in the Bundesliga is an enormous motivation for me."
Gentner played 34 games for Union in the 2019/20 season, scoring four goals and making three assists.
