Simmons extends U's stayJack Simmons has been offered a professional development contract.
And Jack received praise from the U's youth team boss.
Tony Humes, Head of Youth, told the official website, "Jack really deserves this development contract and congratulations must go to him for the performances he has shown both in training and in matches."
"We took him off Ipswich this time last year, and he has progressed really well in the past twelve months."
Explaining Simmons' strengths, Humes continued, "He is a bright player and his real attributes are how direct and dynamic he is, something that always puts defences on the back foot."
"As with Billy and Nnamdi, we have talked with Jack about what he needs to concentrate on and made it clear that there is still a lot of hard work still to do."
