“I felt it was a no-brainer to recommend to the Club that we reward him"
Paul Cook has praised Janoi Donacien after the Blues full-back signed a contract extension at the Club yesterday afternoon.
Janoi has been with Town since 2018, but it is this season that has seen the 28-year-old cement himself as a regular feature in the first-team setup.
"Janoi has come in and held his own and then some," Paul told iFollow Ipswich.
"Supporters will see how well he has done on the pitch, but it's not just about that. It's about the whole package and what you get off the pitch as well. He's a great bloke and he is very popular both with the other lads in the dressing room, and the staff and supporters.
“I felt it was a no-brainer to recommend to the Club that we reward him, and I'm delighted he'll be with us in the long-term.
“It sends a clear message that it’s not just about signing players, it’s also about players within the building and the Club proving that they should be in the team. Janoi’s done that."
