The captain scored seven goals in 27 Serie A appearances for the Rossoneri last season.

Ambrosini, 32, joined AC Milan in 1995 from second division side Cesena and is in his 14th campaign with the Italian giants.

"AC Milan can confirm that Massimo Ambrosini's contract has been extended and the player will remain at the club until 30th June 2011,'' read a statement on the club's official website.
