Midfielder Rossi Jarvis has agreed a one-year extension to his contract at Cambridge United.

The 24-year-old, who joined the U's in August 2011 on a one-year deal after impressing on trial, made 39 starts for the club this season.

"I'm happy in life and happy at the club and that gives you confidence," Jarvis told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.

"My form in the last six weeks has been the best since I've been here, so I'm raring to go for next season."

Born in Norfolk and a former Norwich City player, Jarvis moved to Luton Town in 2008 before leaving for Barnet in 2010.

"With not having a pre-season it took me six or seven games to get up to fitness, so I'm looking forward to a proper pre-season and hopefully starting next season fitter and sharper," he added.

"It's definitely my intention to get back into the Football League, and it would be ideal if it was with Cambridge."

Manager Jez George said he was delighted Jarvis had agreed to extend his stay.

"Rossi gives the team an element of composure and we're really pleased he's committed to another 12 months," he told the club website.

"He's a good character to have around, an intelligent player."

George is also in talks with four other members of the squad regarding new contracts.
