Rose Extends Contract

Danny Rose has extended his current contract at Portsmouth for another year, keeping him at the club until July 2019.

This is obviously excellent news and a sensible decision to give Danny an extra year just to be sure the injury he has suffered this season doesn't have any long term reprecussions and he can get back to his best.

The impact he has made on Pompey this season has been unquestionable. After Pompey's stuttering start to the season, Rose's introduction gave the midfield some extra bite and it is no coincidence that the Blues won nine of eleven games at the tail end of 2017 with him in the side.

It's also no coincidence that Pompey's form has nosedived having won just two games in twelve since John-Joe O'Toole's challenge in the 3-1 win over Northampton took Rose out of the picture. It'll be interesting to see if he plays again this season but Kenny Jackett won't want to rush him back.

Hopefully Danny will be back to his best when he returns to the side. The fans and his team mates have certainly missed him.
