Sky Bet League Two strugglers Cambridge United have confirmed on their official website that striker Uche Ikpeazu has signed a new two-year deal at the club.
The 21 year-old’s extended contract at the Abbey Stadium will keep him there until the summer of 2018, after putting pen-to-paper on a short-term deal at Cambridge in August after been released by Premier League side Watford.
Standing at 6’3”, Ikpeazu has quickly become a fan favourite for the fourth tier team after scoring on his debut for Cambridge United in a victory against Newport County in September.
His only other goal for The U’s came against Middlesbrough under-23s in the Checkatrade Trophy.
Uche Ikpeazu’s team currently sit third from bottom in the League Two table under the guidance of former Notts County manager Shaun Derry.
They are just one point above Leyton Orient and five away from Newport County, who are rooted at the foot of the league.
Cambridge United supporters – are you happy with the extension of the striker’s contract at the club? Who does Derry need to buy in January to survive a relegation scrap?
