Peterborough United keeper Paul Jones calm on deal renewal

Peterborough United goalkeeper Paul Jones has said he has no concerns about rushing to renew his contract, which expires at the end of this season.

The 25-year-old has been preferred to team-mate Joe Lewis in the Posh's last two Championship outings.

"There is no rush, my priority is the games. I like it here, I'm settled," he told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.

"I like the club, the supporters are great, we are playing in a great league so I'm really happy."

Jones started the season as boss Darren Ferguson's first-choice keeper, playing 21 times before being replaced by Lewis in November.

But the former Exeter man has reclaimed the spot between the posts after a 12-game spell out of the side.

"It's frustrating not playing. I found it quite difficult after playing for quite a lot of the season but I think I have dealt with it well," he added.

"It was fine between me and the manager, he gave me his reasons. I just got my head down, worked hard and got back in the team.

"I didn't feel any added pressure coming back in. I know what I'm capable of and I just had to go out there and play my usual game.

"You can't let things faze you. You can't get down you just have to keep level-headed and put in solid, consistent performances."
