Akinfenwa signs contract extension at Wycombe

Striker Adebayo Akinfenwa has committed himself to Wycombe by signing a one-year contract extension with the League One club.

The 37-year-old frontman has scored 44 goals in three seasons since arriving at Adams Park from Wimbledon during the summer of 2016.

Manager Gareth Ainsworth told the club’s official website, “People have been writing Bayo off since he first pulled on a pair of football boots, but he continues to deliver year after year and he’s such a huge part of what we’ve been building here, so I’m delighted to keep him here.

“He brings so much to the club, on and off the pitch, and I know how popular he is with the rest of the squad, all the staff, and all of the supporters, and I firmly believe he’s still got what it takes to be a real driving force for us again next season.”

Akinfenwa follows fellow frontman Scott Kashket in extending his stay after he signed a three-year deal in May.
