Ian Henderson and Callum Camps have signed extended contracts with League One side Rochdale, as revealed by their official club website. Both deals were set to expire at the end of this current season.

19-year-old midfielder Camps has signed a new one-year deal, meaning his new contract expires at the end of the 2016/17 campaign. The youngster clearly was delighted at committing his immediate future to the Spotland club,

“I’m really pleased to have signed the extension. I’m enjoying my football and I enjoy it here at the club. It’s a good environment and I feel as though I’m developing as a player and as a person, and I also think I’ve matured a lot over the summer.

I’ve personally had a good start to the season so I want to keep working hard to keep developing and to hopefully get a consistent run in the team.”

Henderson has featured over 100 times for the Greater Manchester outfit and the 30-year-old has signed a two-year contract until the end of the 2017/18 campaign. The forward also revealed that he plans on ending his career with Keith Hill’s men,

“When you reflect back over the time that I’ve been at the football club, it has been one of them magic moments where everything clicks because prior to that I had a nomadic career. I think I’ve found my home and I’m going to retire at Rochdale.

I’m going to see out my playing career here because I love the place so much. I love the North West and there are so many factors determining my stay here – the football, the management staff, the players and the fans. I also want to settle in the North West so I’m extremely happy.”

Hill also gave his views on the news that both players want to extend their stays with the club, who currently sit in 10th spot in League One,

“Retaining these two players, who are at different spectrums of their career, is a magnificent achievement for the football club. I’m just really pleased that Callum and Ian have decided to continue on the journey. I believe with that type of signing that it’ll be a very successful journey.”
