Although the Tigers had initially exercised their option to offer him a one-year deal at the end of the 2015/16 season, negotiations began immediately to secure Jakupović on a longer-term contract with a two-year deal now agreed.

Jakupović is the club’s longest-serving player having arrived from Greek side Aris Salonika in July 2012. The 31-year-old has played 28 times for the Tigers and played a key role in the Play-Off success at the end of last season.
