Elliott Bennett says he jumped at the chance to extend his stay at Ewood Park after the midfielder penned a deal until at least June 2021.

The popular utility man put pen-to-paper earlier today on fresh terms and commit his future to the club and take him through to a fifth year in East Lancashire.
And the 29-year-old, who arrived from Norwich City in January 2016, said the opportunity to sign on the dotted line was a "very easy decision".
“I’m buzzing. As soon as the club and my agent spoke I was extremely keen to get the deal signed. It was a very, very easy decision," the midfielder told iFollow Rovers.
“It’s no secret how much I love playing for this club and ever since I’ve walked through the door it’s been fantastic.
“It feels like home here. I get on unbelievably well with all the lads, the staff around the training ground, everyone really. The fans have taken to me really well, which helps. You don’t want to ever be at a club where the fans don’t want you!"
A popular figure with his team-mates, staff and supporters, Benno says he's looking forward to a bright future with people who he classes as good friends.
“I love coming into work every day and pulling on that shirt on a Saturday and Tuesdays," he added.
“It’s a joy to come into work every day. Everyone is smiling, nobody’s moody and you’re seeing your mates really. We’re all striving for success and they are colleagues, but we’re all such good friends.
“Nobody wants to let anyone down and that's the spirit we have within the group."
