The 35-year-old shot-stopper arrived on Teesside last summer after being released by Greek side AEK Athens, but had to wait until January to make his debut in an FA Cup clash with Hull City at the Riverside Stadium.

Since then, Konstantopoulos has gone on to make 12 starts in the Sky Bet Championship, displacing Jason Steele as the club's first-choice goalkeeper.

Boro boss Aitor Karanka revealed the former Hartlepool keeper's commitment since arriving was key to a new contract being offered.

"When I came, Jason Steele was the number one keeper," the former Real Madrid coach told the club's official website.

"We brought in Shay, but Dimi kept working 100 per cent.

"Then we brought in Tomasz and still Dimi kept working.

"He then got his chance, played very well and deserves this contract."

ou spend £200 million in one year and you say 3 years to win the title, I don't think the Man U board signed you to win the title in 3 years after shelling out that sort of cash. Spending that sort of money you should be challenging for the title in this season, not getting an early excuse in to try appeasing the fans and board.

guess Storey was able to cancel his planned trip to the shops this weekend. He won't need to buy any food for a while because he's really dining out on those Angel/angel puns. It's going to be a long season.
