“He was very good for us last season and he has continued to do it for us this season and when players are playing like that, at a good age as well, then a lot of clubs – at least in the papers – are interested in them and that puts them in a good position for a new deal,” Bilic said.

“He definitely deserved it, so it’s a club decision together with my own but for me he has a big-time green light to sign a new deal with us!

“The players have deals, but he is the player who came last season to us and he has improved a lot and came from being a player for the future to one who we gave a chance to one of our most important players.”
