Jabo Ibehre has signed a new one-year deal with Cambridge United, but ex-captain Leon Legge will leave the League Two club in the summer.

Veteran striker Ibehre, 35, has scored eight goals in 31 appearances since joining Cambridge in the summer of 2017 from Carlisle United.

Former Brentford centre-back Legge, 32, joined the U's from Gillingham in 2015 and has played 123 times for the club.

He has not started a game since January because of a long-term shoulder injury.

"We wish Leon nothing but the best and are sure the Abbey faithful will give him a suitable farewell on Saturday," said head of football Ben Strang.

"Unfortunately at the stage of Leon's career he needs and deserves to be playing in this league, and similarly to the latter stages of this season, we don't feel that we are able to provide that."
