                    === Samuel signs new Inter contract ===
 Milan,  Italy (Sports  Network) -  Walter  Samuel signed  a one-year  contract
 extension  with Inter Milan on Friday, ensuring his stay at the San Siro until
 June 2014.
 The  35-year-old's previous  deal was  set to  expire this  summer, and  after
 appearing  in only  16 games during an injury-plagued season last year, it was
 thought that Samuel could be released.
 "I'm very happy to have renewed my contract for another year," Samuel told the
 club's official website.
 "Along  with my  teammates, I hope I  can give Inter a positive year and repay
 the club for the faith they've shown, since they still believe in me."
 Samuel  joined Inter  from Real  Madrid in  2005 and  he has  won 56  caps for
 Argentina during his international career.
 His  extension also  comes  just  a few  days  after  another veteran,  Javier
 Zanetti, signed on for another season with the Nerazzurri.
