Guessing there are some performance/match requirements there for automatic renewals. A case of worrying about longterm health (carrying something nasty we don't really know of?), thinking we have blokes coming through that could overtake him, or just a change in approach regarding contracts?

I would be happy to give him 2 years, given he's about to turn 26 and has plenty of good football left in him.
But at the same time, I reckon it's good to see the club being more cautious when giving out extensions.

Signed until at least 2020 suggests there is another year or two in the deal if he reaches certain KPI’s/triggers.

Which is fair enough considering he had pretty serious back surgery only 12 months ago.
