"I love it here. The fans are incredible. They're the best fans I've ever played under.

"They get behind us all so much and the entire Club is heading in the right direction, so I want to be here to help."

On the ease of his decision to sign a new contract...

"It was a no-brainer, for me. I have been here long enough now that I know how the Gaffer works, the same with Adi [Viveash] and Dennis [Lawrence].

"I absolutely love it here. Everyone has been incredible with me since the day I walked through the door, right down to Adam [Hearn] and the physio and fitness staff.

"It is the easiest decision I have ever had to make. It feels like home to me, thanks to those fans."

On reaching new heights with the Sky Blues...

"I have got better and better since I have been here and I am buzzing."

"In the build-up to my injury, I would say that I was playing the best football of my career so far.

"I just need to get back to that now and return to that level."

On City's fine defensive record this season...

"I take immense pride in that. We want a clean sheet every game.

"It starts from the front, the strikers and midfielders work their socks off, and then Ben [Wilson] does what he needs to do with some unbelievable saves.

"He makes the saves; we make the blocks. That's all you need to do."

On the remainder of the season ahead...

"We need to take it one game at a time. It's as simple as that.

"Against Millwall, we need to back Saturday up with a win."
