Coppinger pens new contract at Doncaster Rovers

Sean O’ Driscoll has convinced veteran midfielder, James Coppinger, to sign a new contract which will see him staying at the Keepmoat Stadium until 2014.

The former Newcastle winger had been linked with a move away from Doncaster, with Ipswich the most likely to gain his signature, however chose to end speculation and sign an extension.

Coppinger is Rovers’ longest-serving player with over 250 games under his belt, and will be looking to break the 10-year mark at Doncaster, should he see out his new contract.

The 30 year-old will be looking to help his long-time club improve on last year’s 21st place finish and get a little further from the relegation spots.
