"I think it's a fantastic club to be at, with a really bright future, and the ambition shown at the club is one where we want to move the club forward, so for me it was a no-brainer.

"I feel like with the squad we've got and the players we've got that we've got a fantastic group.

"Obviously, we had the experience in Europe last year and getting to a cup final as well, so I think they are two things we all want to experience again and I think moving forward that's what the club wants.

"We want to do well in every competition and see where it takes us."
