Striker Uche Ikpeazu has agreed a deal to stay at Cambridge United until the end of the 2017-18 season.

The former Reading trainee, 21, joined the U's on a short-term deal in the summer after being released by Watford.

The powerfully-built frontman has since scored two goals in three starts and eight substitute appearances.

"Uche still has the potential to improve, so it's important we make sure his development continues," manager Shaun Derry told the club's website.
