Versatile Oxford United defender Sam Long has signed a new one-year contract with the League One club.

Long has made 26 first-team appearances for the U's, but did not feature for their senior side last season.

The 23-year-old, who can play at full-back and centre-half, played in 14 games on loan at National League South side Hampton and Richmond Borough.

"I've maybe not had the best of luck but I see this as a new start," he told the club website.

"I have to work hard in pre season, show what I can do, and hopefully be back in and around the first team on a much more regular basis."
