Manager Neil Harris has said that he feels Jimmy Abdou has plenty left to offer the club, so he’s delighted to see him commit to his new two year deal.

Having signed on until the summer of 2017, Abdou will now head into his eighth season at the club, and Harris told the official site that he felt the 30 year old certainly was a role model for our younger lads and more than has a role to play as one of the senior leaders in the coming seasons.

‘Jimmy is an integral part of the club and has been for a long time now. I’m absolutely delighted that his contract is all sorted. He epitomises what we are about in terms of his work-rate, his energy, his enthusiasm and the way in which he leads by example. Jimmy is a great role model for the younger players at the club in the way he conducts himself on the training ground, in the gym and on matchdays. The fact the fans hold him in such high esteem is extremely important.’

Harris went on to say that he’s at an age where he should be enjoying his football, and he’s settled at the club, so there should be more to come from him.

‘Jimmy’s enthusiasm for the game is infectious and his attitude is top drawer. It will be really key next season that we utilise that, especially in terms of our style of play. We want to get the ball forward and work up the pitch and Jimmy is very important to that.’
