"I am here until 2015, I have been here for four years and that would take me to seven.

"I have really enjoyed my time here, my family love it here and it is great to pencil it down and I am just looking forward to the rest of the season now."

Hoolahan, who has netted 33 goals in just over 160 appearances, added: "The last couple of years have been great coming up from League One all the way up to the Premier league and doing so well last year.

"We are doing even better this season and hopefully we can keep that run going.

"The last few months I have been playing and it is just great to be involved with the lads.

"We have got some top-quality players here and I am really enjoying it."
