The defender spent the second half of last season on loan at Accrington Stanley and has yet to feature under Town boss Paul Lambert.

However, the defender is set to be given a chance to win the Blues' right-back spot this summer and is determined to make the most of it.

"Obviously, yeah, because it gives me the motivation by knowing I'm in his plans and in his head for the coming season," Donacien said, when asked if being in the manager's plans had given him a boost.

"Pre-season is what it is, it's there for you to work hard, try your best and get some match fitness," he continued during a club interview.

"It's a big year for everyone, not just me, so everyone needs to try their hardest for the club.
