Jones happy he inked Middlesbrough contract

Brad Jones is pleased to have signed his new contract at Middlesbrough. The Australian goalkeeper told the Sunday Sun: "It was a difficult one because when you're not playing you look at things and think 'Am I going to get a chance? Should I move on?'.

"But the manager's always been honest and I've got coaches here, like Stephen Pears, who I've got a lot of time for.

"I knew the gaffer as a player, and Coops as well.

"That sort of had a bearing on it. It got to a point where I was happy here, and moving doesn't always guarantee getting what you want.

"It gets frustrating when you're sat on the bench.

"Sometimes you feel like you can't contribute, but at the moment I'm happy to be playing.

"The club have always looked after me so I was happy to stay, and I've no regrets."
