Aaron Lennon said the enjoyment level of his time here was a key factor in him signing to extend his stay at the Club.

The speedy winger, a summer arrival from Leeds United, has committed his future to us until 2010.

"Everything is going brilliantly for me," said the soon-to-be 19-year-old. "I am delighted to extend my stay at the club because I have enjoyed my time here.

"I love the club and everybody here really - and I think it shows in my game.

"I am fully settled and enjoying every moment of it."

Aaron has made 22 appearances in our colours since heading south - starting our last two games and getting off the goalscoring mark in the 2-0 win over Birmingham at St Andrews. He admitted that he did not imagine featuring so strongly in the first team when he was added to the ranks during the close season.

"I think I am playing a lot better and feel a lot sharper lately. I was on the bench for a few games and I think it was a good break for me, to be fair. I have come back and feel fresh and sharp - as the team do.

"We were a little below par, but we are back to where we were at the start of the season and it is brilliant time to be picking up wins.

"I was saying to my dad, everything has gone better than I thought and I never suspected that I would play so many games or settle in so well.

"It has been a dream for me, everything has gone perfectly. The only thing that could make it better is for us to stay in the position we are now."
