Sebastian Larsson has been with Sunderland for three seasons

Sunderland midfielder Sebastian Larsson has signed a new contract that will keep him at the club until 2017.

The Sweden international only missed seven top-flight matches in 2013/14 and also played in the Capital One final against Manchester City in March.

Larsson played an important role in keeping Sunderland in the Barclays Premier League last season, scoring the winner at Old Trafford as the club sealed a vital victory over Manchester United.

"I'm delighted to have signed a new deal with the club," he told the club website. "I've had talks with [head coach] Gus and [sporting director] Lee Congerton and I feel that this is a club moving in the right direction and I want to be part of it.

"I had a few options but I want to be at Sunderland and I'm looking forward to the new season."
