On Jakupovic, “Eldin Jakupovic has extended his contract at the KCOM stadium for a further two years after agreeing terms on a new deal today.Although the Club had initially exercised its option to offer the goalkeeper a one-year deal at the end of the 2015/16 season, negotiations began immediately to secure Jakupovic on a longer-term contract with a two-year deal now agreed. Jakupovic is the Club’s longest-serving player having arrived from Greek side Aris Salonika in July 2012.
