'Doc's' deal was announced at the weekend and the central defender celebrated by playing a big part in the clean sheet kept in the win over Newcastle at the Lane on Sunday. The Republic of Ireland international considers that, given the young age of most of the squad, the players feel the club is really heading in the right direction.
"I signed my new contract the day before we left for Dubai," he reported. "I am very proud and very happy to have signed it.
"We are all getting the feeling that this club is going somewhere. We've got a lot of lads 24 and under and David is doing a fantastic job bringing a lot of young players in that will only benefit the future hopefully."
