The home-grown midfielder enjoyed a magnificent 2014-15.
His breakthrough season began with a Goal of the Season contender against Forest, a Premier League debut at Arsenal, the Capital One Cup Final at Wembley and a full England debut.
But he's not resting on his laurels.
Last season was brilliant and now the challenge is to make sure I kick on and keep improving," said Ryan, who turns 24 on Saturday (June 13).
"It’s part and parcel of playing for a massive football club that they will always attract players from all over the world but I’m confident in my ability and if I stay fit and keep improving, I’ll relish any challenge and try to keep my place.
"My body feels good and I’ll look to get back in early for pre-season. It’s important to have a rest but I won’t take too long off physically."
