Jonathan Hogg has become the latest youngster to pen a contract extension and has extended his stay at B6 until at 2013.
Speaking on the Official Site Hogg was delighted with the outcome and said:
'I've worked hard to get to this point and I know I have to continue to work hard if I want to keep improving. I love the club and I'm delighted to be here and playing a part in what we're trying to achieve.'
Hogg has been with the club since 15 and he's been delighted to see so many of his mates make the step into the first team this season, but he's obviously overjoyed that he's been called upon given the injury worries that he's had over the years, leading to over 12 months on the sidelines in his few short years.
He knows Dr Richard Steadman as well as Martin Laursen.
'There were times when I didn't think I would ever get to this point after the injury I suffered when I ruptured my lateral ligament and my lateral hamstring tendon and damaged my cruciate ligament.'
Christ what a list for a 22 year old!
'The other lads encouraged me at important times and I didn't give up. The harder you work in rehab, the stronger your legs and knees will be and thankfully it worked out for me.'
Onwards and upwards for yet another product of our Academy.
