Papa Bouba Diop has had his contract with the club extended by a further month.

The midfield enforcer's fresh deal will run until December 17.

The ex-Senegal international has yet to feature in a first team game, but is seen as an important squad member heading into the hectic festive fixture schedule.

Lee Clark has already highlighted the vastly experienced Diop's contribution to the camp off the field and the 34-year-old is ready to be called upon, having been an unused sub in the last six fixtures.
