Clarke-Harris rewarded with new contract
Latics striker Jonson Clarke-Harris, who joined the club from Peterborough United in the summer, has been rewarded for his continued improvement with an eighteen month extension to his contract.
Manager Lee Johnson said on the contract: "Jono's done really well since he came in. When we brought him in it was a test for him to see if he could cope at this level and with our level's of intensity. He has improved a lot this year, we believe in him and that he will continue to improve.
"We felt that to give him an improved contract would show him that we value his contribution. We know that he still needs to improve but we feel that if he keeps the same attitude he has shown, he has a very good chance of having a good career"
The striker added: "This is a massive step in my career, I am really excited to have signed a new contract. I am really enjoying being at the club, I'm enjoying my football. We have a great bunch of lads here, the coaching staff have done a lot of good things for me, which are helping me to improve every day".
