The 24-year-old Australian - signed last summer from Peterborough - has agreed a new two-year deal with the Latics.

Dickov told the club's official website: "I am delighted because James is an integral part of our plans for next season. We saw last season when James and Dean Furman were fit and played alongside each other that there was probably no better central-defensive pairing in League One.

"I would go as far as saying James can be as big as any other signing we make this summer."

Dickov added: "James received a number of other offers which did not surprise me. He could have been better off financially elsewhere but he wants to stay with us.

"The great thing about James is that he is fully committed whether in games or training and also to the club as he has shown by agreeing to sign for two years."

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.
