Crewe midfielder Ryan Wintle has signed a new two-year-contract.
The 22-year-old had 12 months remaining on his previous deal.
Now manager Dave Artell has moved to tie his man down until summer 2021.
Wintle played 50 games in all competitions last season, contributing two goals.
He has made a total of 92 Crewe appearances since joining the club as a scholar from Alsager Town in January 2015.
Wintle was also the runner-up for the 2018/19 Player of the Season award.
