Delighted on this one; he has that something, a bit different to unlock defences! Pity it's not a two year extension, as we'll be in the same boat next year, but hopefully then he'll sign a longer extension

He certainly did the business Forest away. Need to see more of him on the pitch and we will with a bit of luck.
Billy Bodin Billy Bodin is the son of former Wales, Cardiff City and Swindon Town player Paul Bodin Billy Bodin has signed a new contract to keep him at Preston North End until the summer of 2021.
The 27-year-old attacker, who was out of contract at the end of this season, has spent almost two years at Deepdale after moving from Bristol Rovers for an undisclosed fee in January 2018.
Since then Bodin, who has won one cap for Wales, has played 27 times.
He missed all of last season after suffering a knee ligament injury but returned to the side in August.
Bodin has scored twice in eight appearances this season and told the club website: "On the pitch it is going fantastically well.
"The lads have been doing great this season and I can't wait to try and get back in the team and focus on the league."
The former Torquay and Northampton player added: "I want to try and show the fans what I can do and be as consistent as I can, either creating or scoring goals."
"To dictate the pace and course of a game, a player has to be blessed with awesome qualities. Those who have accomplished it on a regular basis can be counted on the fingers of one hand – Pelé, Maradona, Best, Di Stefano, and Tom Finney"
Bodin gives us the option of playing that fluid front three (providing others are fit) that proved very effective for a few games. Will be good to see him back, especially on the road. I thought it took us a while to adjust to playing the correct balls in to Stockley, but we got there in the second half. We now have a few ways of playing, and the knowledge that we can do so.
