De Rossi signs five-year extension with Roma

Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi has signed a year contract extension, the Italian club announced Sunday.

De Rossi, 28, had a contract through the end of the current season, but signed a new deal to keep him with the only club he's played for during his career.

The Italian international debuted for Roma in 2001, and returned to the lineup Sunday after two matches on the sideline with a back injury to help Roma crush Inter Milan, 4-0.

No financial details were released about De Rossi's new contract.
