The 21-year-old, currently with the Republic of Ireland Under-21 squad, has started the season well and Kenny Jackett moved quickly to tie him down until 2016.

"Matt Doherty has made a very good start to the season, generally being defensively sound and has created chances and goals for us going forward," he told the club's official website.

"I have been pleased that he has built on the good start to his run in the team last season which has resulted in the club stepping in very early this season to negotiate a new contract.

"As the head coach I am very pleased we have concluded this quickly and that both the club and Matt see the future here for a young player who has been very good so far."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
