As Rob says a large part of recruitment is retaining your top players and Ben certainly falls into this category!

good news but wondering why they're now only announced as new long term contracts not how long the contract is?

If you were on a fixed term contract would you want everyone with whom you worked, let alone all their wives and children to know how long your contract was?

Frankly it's nobody's business except the club and the player's.

fully understand that snd get it, the reason for my comment was that its changed they used to announce players have signed a new 1 or 2 year contract and they've stopped doing it.

yes the Sticky "contract status" will quickly become redundant it will just have a list of players when nobody knows when they are leaving 😁

If I recall from what I'd previously read, Tom Francis's contract can only be extended if the extensions were included when the initial contract was agreed. While that doesn't apply to Ben and Harry, it may just be that the club don't want others to know too much about when players could be approached with a view to moving.

that was my thought on the change, just strange that after 10 years in the prem they decide to keep it a secret.
