I think at the end of the day it’s the least that he deserves.
After all, he’s put the work in and he’s gotten his reward, although only time will tell if this is the only contract extension that he’s going to get.
The club announced yesterday that they have taken up the option of extending Miguel Fernandez’s loan deal at the club and as a result, he’ll now be with the Blues until the end of the 2020/21 season.
Fernandez has been in sensational form for the U23 side this year, scoring 7 goals in 16 games from midfield, and has often been the subject of praise for Blues fans whenever he bangs them in for the academy side, with many pointing out that he should be promoted to the first team sooner rather than later, something I would very much be happy with.
How many appearances will Fernandez make in the first-team next season?
Ten or less
More than ten
So when the news came through on social media yesterday, there was plenty of positivity to go around as fans reacted to the exciting news.

Definitely deserves a chance next season

Could've said that about Ronan Hale, probably even more of bagsman, nothing happened there either.

What about you? Do you think Fernandez will play a big part in the Blues first-team next season?
