Andy Whing signs new Oxford United deal

Oxford United defender Andy Whing has signed a new two-year contract with the League Two club.

The 28-year-old moved to the Kassam Stadium in May 2011, made 25 appearances for the U's last season and has made 71 for them in total.

He began his career at Coventry before spells at Brighton, Chesterfield and Leyton Orient.

"I'm delighted to sign and have enjoyed my two years at the club," Whing told BBC Radio Oxford.

Whing, who says he hopes to play more games in midfield next season, won the Supporters' Player of the Season Award in his first season.

He also won the Goal of the Season award last term for a spectacular overhead kick against Rochdale.

"Obviously we wanted a play-off spot or to achieve promotion, but I'm really excited about the next two years," he added.

"It's a new era with the turnaround of players and I'm looking forward to getting back for pre season.

"It will take the young players a while to settle in and I'll always be there for advice."
