O'Donovan, 27, arrived on a short-term contract from Coventry in January and his six goals in 16 starts impressed manager Aidy Boothroyd enough to earn a longer deal.

Boothroyd told the club's official website: "There was considerable interest in Roy from a number of clubs from a higher level and we had to work hard to secure Roy's signature. But Roy feels settled with us and we are delighted we have been able to keep him.

"I thought he was terrific for us towards the end of the season and once he has got a full pre-season under his belt I think we will have a real player there."

o is Jordan Ibe overqualified for this list or what? To be honest I was expecting to see his name, I thought he'd fit in perfectly. Maybe his name is too familiar? Because otherwise this list should be made for him. You could actually just insert his name & stats into the middle paragraph about Brandt and it would describe Ibe.

hat a wonderful compliment - that Wenger has been able to raise more funds for players running a football club than Jose's patron has in running the economy of a small country. I guess it shows there are different kinds of success.
