Great news. There's plenty of other teams who'd love to have him. He's a credit to the club and it also says a lot about NTFC.

Well done to the club, and great to have you around for the foreseeable future Sam.

The cynic in me thinks this is a bit of a distraction tactic.

The cynic in me says, Hoskins got tapped up (League 2 agent probably), good personal offer, went to Brady, said he wanted more or he's off, hence extended contract.

I don't blame him by the way, we'd all do the same.

Fcuking hell. Even this great news has to be shrouded in cynicism and conjecture. Nobody knows the intimate details and circumstances surrounding the deal. Shall we just enjoy it, rather than dissect every detail that comes our way.  Grin Grin

Itís not moaning it having an option on why this has been announced just before the transfer window closes.

Had we not one the last couple then maybe, but the team is looking competitive and I wouldnít think there would be any need for that type of stunt.

Judging by his table full of awards from various places, itís either that and/or we want a fair price from any circling vultures. Good business all round. If heíd performed like this from the off heíd be worth a fortune but then again we wouldnít have seen him for long.
I wonder if it puzzles/frustrates him why it took so long to find this form at the age of 29/30? It might not be unique but must be extremely unusual. Itís not being unfair on his former self but heís next level these days.

Looks like Sam has rediscovered his youthful form;

Hoskins joined Southampton's youth academy from Oakwood Rangers in 2005, progressing through the ranks and becoming a permanent fixture in the club's youth and reserve sides. He was top goalscorer for Southampton's U18 side for two successive seasons, before repeating the feat the following two years at U21 level, despite being out on loan for significant periods during the season.

Maybe it is, but I'd be amazed if Sam hasn't had a number of offers in the last few weeks. We've probably had to improve his terms considerably to get him to sign up again. Hopefully it wasn't a choice between improving his offer and getting in another attacker, but if it was, it was definitely the right choice. I can't think of anyone we could sign on a low budget who is likely to offer as much as Sam does. We are very lucky he still wants to stay.

Wasn't Sam one of the players who got a contract extension halfway through last season? If so, he was probably under contract until the end of next season anyway.
