Oxford United defender Sam Long has signed a new one-year contract with his hometown club.

The 22-year-old has made six appearances in all competitions for the League One side this term.

Long, who made his first-team debut in April 2013, is a graduate of the U's academy.

"He can play in a few positions and is improving all the time," Oxford head coach Michael Appleton said.

"He has had to be a bit patient but he will get his chance at some stage and we know he will take it with both hands when that happens."
