"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."

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
