    At the end of the day, especially with his versatility, well worth a contract extension.
    Lets keep him, valuable squad member. Can see him game sharing with Brown a lot this season.

    Was just going to say would you think he would be suited to browns role as cdm? With a bit of added aggression and being more defensive from his times playing centre half he could play the role really well. A few seasons ago I liked him in cm as he was composed and good at distributing the ball. A lot of people saying they'd like ajer there but I think we should give nir a game or two there to see. And on the contract extension, I've been quick to jump on bittons back the last two seasons saying he's not good enough mainly because he was thrown in at cb for fairly important games but in fairness he's always up for it and will play anywhere he's asked and for the past while he's looked good at cb I think. Still not a natural cb but has done his duties so hats off. Also he loves the club, is experienced, seems a good personality around the players too and has no problem being a squad player as long as he can do his part when called upon so I think an extension is a no brainer and well deserved

    I think he has been a really good cb and versatile players can be hard to come by. He needs to stay as a player his quality would cost us £5m minimum

    Good to hear he has played well so far this season. Probably would have played again on Wednesday if he had of been fit.

    Aye can come in at DM or CB he's a very useful squad player. Would give him a new contract.

    Would definitely give him a new contract. Isn’t liked by all the supporters but he is such a versatile player to step in midfield or defence when required. He has definitely grown into that defensive role more imo. Before he sometimes looked a bit shaky but he has put in some very assured performances there for us now.

    So calm and composed on the ball which is great to have. Especially coming off the bench in a game like last night.

    Great to have guys that have been here for the long term that want to stay and commit their future to the club. Couldn’t believe it when I read he has been here for 6 years now!
