Inter Milan forward Rodrigo Palacio has committed his future to the Serie A club by signing a new one-year contract.

The 32-year-old Argentinian, whose deal at San Siro was set to expire in 2015, has put pen to paper on an extension that keeps him with Inter until June 30, 2016.

Palacio has scored 36 goals in 60 appearances for the Nerazzurri since leaving Genoa two years ago, with a third of those goals arriving this season as fifth-placed Inter battle Napoli and Fiorentina for a Champions League place.

A statement published on Inter's official website described Palacio as "a reference point for the team and a champion beloved by the fans" who is "tireless and generous to his team-mates but capable of great solo efforts".

There were fears among Inter fans in recent weeks he would be tempted to cut his stay in Milan short this summer to return to his homeland amid interest from former club Boca Juniors.
