When asked about Asante, manager Paul Cook told the DT at Thursday’s pre-match press conference: “Asante came off the transfer list about two weeks ago.

"He has been an absolute pleasure to work with all summer.

"I am delighted with his form both on and off the pitch.”

He added: "He is doing terrifically well alongside the other 22-24 players that we have.

"They are all vying for positions and there’s a really good work-ethic around them.

"There’s a really good transparency that they want to learn and they want to do well and that is something that I think is important for every team at every level.”
