Speaking about his new contract Dean Marney said, “I’m over the moon to secure my future for the next couple of years.  I love it here, if it was a five years deal to stay here at the club, then I would have signed that straight away.

I’ve said from day one, it’s a great club and the last few years have been great years for myself personally and for the club, so I obviously just want to be a part of the future and I’m really looking forward to the next two seasons.”

Marney a former Tottenham trainee picked up the injury in the 2-2 draw with West Brom in last season’s Premier League fixture is confident of a return to the team in the not-too-distant future.

Speaking about his injury he said, “It’s progressing really well, I’m quite a bit ahead of where I thought I was going to be at this time.  I had a tiny little setback which has maybe added on a week or two, but I’m hopefully playing a game next week and then crack on from there really.

I want to put myself in a position where the gaffer sees me and thinks I am ready to get

back in the side, obviously the lads are doing well at the minute and I know that it’s going to be tough to get back in the side, but I’m working hard.

I think you look at the squad now compared to the squad that went up before, there’s a lot more competition for places now.  Obviously the squad was a lot smaller, you look at the other night and how strong the bench is and there are players to come back to fitness.”
