Jim signed a two-year contract at Spotland in June 2015 to re-unite himself with Dale manager Keith Hill.
He was Dale’s only ever-present last season and his form and consistency saw the club extend his deal until the summer of 2018.
The defender had played Championship football under Hill at Barnsley, before leaving Oakwell to help Bury to promotion in 2014/15.
Aged 31, Jim started his career with Wrexham, but didn’t play league football until joining Macclesfield in July 2006.
He moved to Stockport in January 2008 and was a member of the County side that won promotion from League Two four months later with a Wembley play-off defeat of Rochdale.
Jim later played for Brighton and had two loans spells at Scunthorpe.
