Coach Vitezslav Lavicka has been impressed by Keller this season and is happy to have him at the club for another season.

"Stephan is a superb professional for our club. He is a very committed defender who brings so much European experience to our team," he said.

"He provides great on-field leadership to his team-mates, particularly some of our other defenders. He is a vital part of what we are trying to achieve at Sydney FC."
