Midfielder staying at Fratton - just as everyone hoped

Danny Rose says he can concentrate on regaining full fitness after securing a contract extension that keeps him at Pompdy until the end of next season.
The midfielder had feared his broken leg, suffered against Northampton at the end of December, might mean talks being put on hold. But negotiations carried on and now the one-year extension has been sorted.
Rose is jubilant and told The News: 'I’m delighted it is sorted. It took a little bit longer than I would have liked but I knew it was something which would be resolved eventually. Now I can fully concentrate on the fitness side of things through the rehab and getting back as strong as possible.
‘The new deal was never an issue of any kind but I guess has been something at the back of my mind through the last two-and-a-half months since I sustained the injury.
‘Now that is over the line it is another little thing off my mind and I can fully concentrate on getting back. I’m really settled in the area. You cannot underestimate how important that is because it can have a bearing positively or negatively on the pitch.
‘Finalising my future here means the kids don’t have to move school, among other things – and they are just as delighted as me.’
