Mendieta, who was loaned to FC Barcelona last season, has signed an improved contract with Lazio, which includes a two-year extension until June 2008. The move brings to an end speculation about the 29-year-old former Valencia CF captain's future.
Lazio have also extended Italian international striker Bernardo Corradi's contract until 2008. The 27-year-old Corradi, an €11m buy from Internazionale FC last September, said: "I am very happy to have signed this agreement, and will now work to build something at this club."
