'Djamel's agent has spoken to the chairman and agreed a new contract. It looks as if he is going to sign a one-year deal which is encouraging.'

Burley was also quick to praise the Algerian player telling the official website:-

'He has good skill on the ball and can pick out a pass so I am looking forward to having him here when we begin pre-season training on Monday.'

Burley was also optimistic that midfield man Oakley would also sign a new deal, although he is thought to favour a contract longer than the one year deal he has been offered.

Burley, speaking to, said that he hoped Oakley would still be a member of the squad next season.

'I am hoping Matt will join us for training on Monday.'
