Harrison Dunk has agreed a new two-year deal at Cambridge United.
The 27-year-old left-sided player has extended his stay at the Abbey Stadium to the end of the 2019-20 season.
Dunk has been with the U’s since their Conference days, first signing for the club in the summer of 2011 from Bromley.
“We’re really pleased to get Harrison now for the next couple of years,” said interim head coach Joe Dunne.
“He has done really well, he is a club man. I remember years ago seeing him at Bromley when I was at Colchester.
“He is a player that gives his all. He is developing, even at this age now he is still adding more to his game which is great.
“As a club, it’s great to secure his services because, like Greg [Taylor], it means a lot to us to have good people here and people who can associate with the club and hopefully going forward over the next two years improve it.”
Dunk said: “I am absolutely delighted to be signing another extension with Cambridge United.
“I have had an amazing seven years up to this point at the club, I hope that I can enjoy and contribute towards many more great memories in the forthcoming seasons.
“The fans have been great with me so I can’t wait to repay that faith. I’m looking forward to an exciting and successful season ahead.”
Ben Strang, United’s head of football, added: “This is another positive development in the squad planning for next season. Harrison has been an exemplary professional during his time at the club and is popular with fans, staff and players alike.
“He provides balance and versatility to the squad and is a tremendous character. We’re pleased to secure Harrison’s signature for the next two seasons.”
