Villarreal says Ruben ''Cani'' Gracia has agreed to extend his contract for another three years, tying the Spanish midfielder to the club until June of 2017.

The 32-year-old Cani is second only to former player Marcos Senna in all-time appearances for Villarreal with 302 matches played.

Cani's two goals and playmaking have helped Villarreal make a strong return to the topflight after one year in the second division. It is currently in fifth place.

Cani will miss Saturday's Spanish league game at Barcelona due to a left knee sprain.
