It was a quick and easy process for top goal scorer Luke Varney to sign a new contract at Cheltenham Town according to the popular front man.

The former Leeds United and Ipswich Town striker has extended his stay until the end of next season after penning a new deal at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.

With 14 goals to his name this season since signing in September, the 36-year-old has proved to be a big hit with supporters and has been a major factor in Michael Duff side's movement up the League Two table this term.

"It didn't take long to be honest - once the negotiations started it was an easy decision," Varney said.

"I've said in previous interviews if I was given the chance I would come back next year. I've enjoyed myself and to be part of this group again I was really excited and can't wait to get going again.

"With the gaffer starting the season I'm sure he'll be involved in all of the pre-season plans and there will be a few players coming in, so we're all looking forward to getting back, and hopefully we can keep as many of the bunch as we've had this season because it has been really good to be a part of and hopefully as many can stay as possible."
