Footitt has been one of Derbyshire's shining lights on their return to the LV= County Championship division one, claiming 42 first-class wickets.
Coach Karl Krikken believes it has been the 27-year-old's best season at the County Ground, although Derbyshire appear on the brink of relegation.
"Mark has been a tremendous contributor to our bowling unit in 2013. It's been the best season of his career by far," Krikken said.
"We're in it for the long haul at Derbyshire and keeping our top performing players in the face of interest from other counties is a demonstration of our ambition.
"When he's on-song, Mark adds something different to the bowling unit because he's left-arm and consistently up around 90 miles-per-hour."
