We’re delighted Odion is staying with us. We had a good conversation with his club and Odion’s made a great impact when he came, so that’s very pleasing. He gives us another option upfront, he is a goalscorer and what he does in and around the dressing room as well is great. I hope he’s going to continue and finish off what he has started
