Brunt is desperate for the club to reward his Northern Ireland international team-mate.
â€śI canâ€™t speak highly enough of him as a lad, or of his performances on the pitch,â€ť said Brunt. â€śHeâ€™s a good friend of mine as well so I would love him to stay, and hopefully the club will sort it out.
â€śHeâ€™s been massive for us. From day one, since he stepped into the team, he has been our most consistent player.
â€śAnd thatâ€™s coming from someone who had never played in the Premier League until he was 31."
