Oxford United striker James Constable has signed a new deal that will keep him at the club until 2014.

Constable, who has scored 67 goals for Oxford, initially signed for the club on loan from Shrewsbury Town but made the move permanent in May 2009.

"I'm delighted to be here for the next three years," he told the club website.

"I want to push on and help us get promoted again. I love Oxford and it was an easy decision to make to stay here," said the 26-year-old.

Constable had previous spells in the Football League with Walsall and Shrewsbury but this is his first full season in League Two, having helped the U's win promotion at the end of last season.

Wilder told BBC Oxford: "It's great news for everybody that the boy doesn't want to leave this football club.

"His profile is fantastic, he works hard, he's got ability and those are the types of players I want around me.

"There's more to come from Beano [Constable]. He has to improve and hopefully he'll be part of a team that are pushing at the top of the league."
