Jagielka was quick to praise the 25-year-old.
"It is nice to have him back," Jagielka said. "He learnt his trade at Manchester United. He's composed and has a good range of passing.
"He knows when you put the ball in behind and when to play to feet. He's not afraid to tackle or head, so he is pretty much the complete midfielder.
"He's a character as well and good to have around the dressing room."
