Doncaster are currently in talks with Coppinger about a new deal with the midfielder out of contract this summer and fans want him to stay. Coppinger has continued to commute to the club from Middlesbrough and after 14-years, could this be the perfect end to his long spell at the club?
Fans would certainly like to see him stay.
Not as happy as YOU make this very old man, my son, my dad and grandson when YOU sign another contract with DRFC legend.

Striker John Marquis won the Golden Boot for the second season in a row. Marquis followed up his 26 goals last season with 15 this season.
Defender Danny Amos won the Young Player of the Year. It has been a memorable season for the youngster. He signed his first professional deal with the club in November, won his first cap for Northern Ireland at under-19 level and started his first game in the Football League in the recent draw at Oldham Athletic. At the weekend, he started his first home game in the narrow defeat to champions Wigan Athletic and he described Saturday as an unreal experience.
Unreal experience playing against Wigan yesterday and a Great way to end the season by winning the young player off the year award⚽️????

Do you think James Coppinger will sign a new deal?
Will Doncaster keep hold of John Marquis this summer or will he move on to a new club?
How far do you think youngster Danny Amos can go?
