Rome // The Brazil centre-back Thiago Silva has signed a contract extension at AC Milan that will keep him at the club for another five years.

The 26-year-old joined Milan in 2009 from Fluminense in his homeland after previous unsuccessful spells in Europe with Porto and Dynamo Moscow.

The Dutch veteran Mark van Bommel and third-choice goalkeeper Flavio Roma also signed extensions keeping them at the club until the end of next season.

But former Holland midfielder Clarence Seedorf said he is unsure about his future following his meeting with club bosses.

Seedorf is out of contract with Milan at the end of the season and has been linked with a move to Brazil.

He was one of nine players (including Van Bommel and Roma) whose contracts were running out this season with whom Milan have planned meetings to discuss their futures.

"The meeting went well, I don't know if I'll stay at Milan but it was a good meeting, very friendly," said Seedorf.

"We'll get together again next week because we want to finish the season with a win and then talk.

"Even if we don't continue our working relationship that will be fine, I've always had a good relationship with the club."

Other veterans including captain Massimo Ambrosini, Alessandro Nesta and Andrea Pirlo are also set to discuss new deals in the coming days.
