Former Chelsea trainee Woods, 26, joined in 2014 from Harrogate Town and has signed an undisclosed deal.

He has made 42 league starts for the club over two seasons, having missed the latter stages of 2014-15 with injuries to his ankle and fibula.

"Michael is a terrific player and I am delighted we have managed to get him sorted," added Hignett.
