Wycombe midfielder Matt Bloomfield has signed a new one-year deal, with the option of a further 12 months.

The 28-year-old is the club's longest-serving player, having made 286 appearances in his eight-and-a-half years at Adams Park.

He played 34 times last season as the Chairboys were relegated from League One for the second time in three years.

"I think everyone knows my heart is here and I wanted to stay," Bloomfield told the club website.

"It took a little while to get things sorted but it's done now and I'm really pleased.

"I'm a creature of habit and like to feel comfortable in my surroundings, and I certainly feel comfortable here."

Bloomfield, who was signed from Ipswich Town in December 2003, has become a central figure for Wycombe both on and off the pitch.

He acts as the club's Professional Footballers' Association representative, signed the Government's Charter for Action aimed at tackling homophobia on behalf of the club and was a regular columnist for the BBC Sport website last season.

Boss Gary Waddock added: "I'm absolutely delighted that Blooms has decided to stay. He's Wycombe through and through and we all know what he brings to the table.

"He's fully committed to the cause, has got great energy and was one of our best performers at a higher level last season. He's a joy to work with."
