Dale trio pen new deals

Rochdale have announced that three players have committed their long-term futures to the club.

On the day that the squad returned to pre-season training, Jamie Allen, Bastien Hery and Olly Lancashire all signed new deals to secure their futures.

Midfielder Allen has signed until 2016 while Hery has been given a new deal despite having a year left to run on his current contract, such was the impression he made last season.

Lancashire has signed a one-year extension to his current contract, meaning all three deals will expire in 2016.
