Via the clubs official site, Ian Burchnall said: "Everyone knows what Dion’s about, he has no off switch – be it in training or in games, he brings the same level of intensity.

"Not only that, but he’s a great lad who is keen to better himself and, with there being so much more time on the training ground this season" said the head coach.

"I’m sure we can continue to bring him on leaps and bounds. For Dion and all the other boys to have accepted our offers speaks volumes about the positive environment we’re building here and it gives us a really strong base heading into pre-season.

"Of course, we’re still working hard to bring new signings to the club. We’re being ambitious with our targets, which means a little extra patience is required, but we’re pleased with the progress we’re making." he added.

In a video posted on Notts County official Twitter account, the defender address the fans by saying: "I just want to say a massive thank you for all the support you have shown me in the last two seasons. I've thoroughly enjoyed my time here and it's been an absolute pleasure playing in front of you guys."

Before adding "I've loved every single minute of it. The memories we have created together will stay with me forever, That's why I am happy to extend my stay for another year and I can't wait for you guys [the fans] to get behind me and the boys this season.

"I am buzzing for it to get started."
