Adebayo Akinfenwa's 16-stone frame has made him one of the most recognisable English players outside the Premier League.

Wycombe Wanderers striker Adebayo Akinfenwa has signed a new deal with the club until the summer of 2018.

The 34-year-old, who has a famed 16-stone frame, has 17 goals in 48 games for the club since joining them after leaving AFC Wimbledon last summer.

Akinfenwa - also known as "The Beast" - has helped the Chairboys to within four points off the play-off places.

"I know sometimes the strikers get the plaudits, but the work that goes on by everyone is incredible," he said.

"When we cross that line we are together, and I want to thank everyone; the staff, the players and the fans."
