Doncaster have received a huge boost ahead of the new Championship season with the news star winger James Coppinger has penned a contract extension until 2014.

Coppinger has been the subject of much speculation this summer, with Ipswich understood to have had an improved offer knocked back after their initial bid for his services alongside that of Rovers striker Billy Sharp was rejected.

But the 30-year-old has underlined his commitment to Doncaster by penning a new deal which will see him remain at the Keepmoat Stadium for another three years.

Coppinger is the club's longest-serving player and has made close to 300 appearances since moving to Yorkshire from Exeter in 2004.
