“Raheem has been offered a wonderful deal for a young man who is still developing. Hopefully his representatives can find agreement with the club.

“I know he is happy and you see that in his game. He has been granted an opportunity here. We are not a club that is going to give out what a player is not worth at this stage of his career. We want to reward our best talents.

“Generally, not just for Raheem, it is important young players have something to strive for. If they get too much too young it can sabotage their development. If they get sound advice they will see that.

“Raheem has been outstanding but we must not forget he was given an opportunity at 17 and still has a long way to go and a lot to do. We believe this is the best place for him. It is important you leave something them to progress to.”
