Adebayo Akinfenwa is back at Wycombe Wanderers for a sixth season, penning a one-year contract to remain at Adams Park, the club is delighted to reveal.
The striker, 39, is the Chairboys’ record goalscorer in their EFL era, scoring 55 times and representing the club in League 2, League 1, and the Championship last year.
With more than 200 career goals to his name, and known across the world for his immense strength and infectious character, Akinfenwa has linked up with the squad again this morning in readiness for the start of the new season on Saturday 7th August.
Boss Gareth Ainsworth said: “Bayo has been one of this club’s greatest all-time players and he offers so much on and off the pitch, which is why we’re delighted he’s agreed to stay and be part of our efforts to get back into the Championship.
“Bayo and I have a really close working relationship and we both understand his situation in terms of what he’s able to contribute, alongside his other commitments which we’re fully supportive of as a club.
“The boys love having him around, he’s hugely popular with our supporters and he’s coming back to us fit, sharp and ready to cause headaches to defenders again, like he always does!”
Look out for interviews with Adebayo and Gareth live on Sky Sports News at around 1.15pm today (Thursday).
