"I don't know, I don't know what happens in the future, whether he will sign a new contract or stay with us a long time, I don't know.

"I think he is very happy with the team, the supporters, the club, the city. I think he is very happy.

"I would like Doucoure to stay with us more time."

The Spaniard tips Doucoure to carry on his form, and even improve on the performances he has been giving.

"He is a very good player and he can do better," Gracia added. "I have tried to explain to him many things that he can improve but at this moment, this season, he is a very good player.

"He has a very good attitude and helps the team all of the time with a good mentality and attitude."
