Lanre Oyebanjo considering Histon stay

Right-back Lanre Oyebanjo could still choose to stay with Histon next season, despite their relegation from the Blue Square Bet Premier.

The Republic of Ireland Under-21 man has been offered a new deal.

He told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: "I've just got to weigh up my options as I'm not too sure what I want to do at the current time.

"I think I've done well this season on a personal level, though it was tough getting relegated."

Oyebanjo has proved a huge success since joining the Stutes in the summer of 2008 after leaving Brentford and has been attracting plenty of interest from rival clubs.

However, he has turned down the option of full-time football in the past in order to concentrate on a mathematics and finance degree.

"I've still got a way to go with my course so if I went full-time, I'd need to turn my studies into evening classes," he said.

"Histon haven't handed me a deadline, but they'll obviously be wanting to sort themselves out as soon as possible."

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Joe Welch is hoping to agree terms at Stevenage with his current deal at the Glass World having come to an end.

The 22-year-old spent the last two months of the season on loan at Broadhall Way, winning promotion to League One through the play-offs.

"I'll sit down with the manager at some point and hopefully go from there. I'd certainly love to stay here," he said.
