Rochdale have secured the return of another of last season’s squad with the new that Matty Done has agreed a new two-year deal at the Crown Oil Arena.

The 30-year old, who was out of contract in the summer, now continues his long association with Dale, which stretches back to him first joining the club in 2010.

He would then join Barnsley a year later before returning after a two-year stint at Oakwell, he would then leave again this time to join Sheffield United in 2015 for an undisclosed fee after helping Dale secure promotion to League One.

He was part of the Sheffield United squad who achieved promotion to the Championship before returning to the Crown Oil Arena for a third time during the summer of 2017.

Since first playing for Rochdale Done has raked up 210 appearances for the club and speaking to Dale’s official website says signing a new deal was never in doubt.

“I’m really looking forward to getting back into it when we return for pre-season training on Thursday. It has been a long summer away from the club and I’m delighted to have got the paperwork signed before pre-season starts. 

“I spoke with Brian [Barry-Murphy] at the end of last season about my contract and I was always going to sign it. I’ve had a busy summer being away with the family and doing my coaching badges, so it was just a case of trying to be back in Manchester to get it all done and over the line.”
