Hancox, who has made 18 first-team appearances this campaign, has been offered a two-year contract with the option of extending his stay for a further year, while Reilly, also a regular under manager Lee Clark, has been offered a 12-month contract extension.

Packwood, who is sidelined after breaking his leg in January, has been offered a one-year extension along with Bell, who has the option of extending his new one-year deal by a year.

Clark told the club's official website: "I have made no secret that the emergence of so many young, talented players in and around the first-team this season has been one of the highlights of my first year at the football club.

"The fact that these new contracts have been offered proves that, as a club, we are committed to building for the future and furthering the development of these rising stars.

"Callum and Mitch have proven to be vital members of my first-team squad this season, as was Will before his horrific injury and I'm delighted to see that he's well on the road to recovery.

"I am looking forward to continuing my working relationship with all three players, while Amari'i is another undoubted talent who both myself and the coaching staff look forward to nurturing."

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
