DOMINIC Gape has signed a new deal to remain at Wycombe Wanderers.

Gape, 27, was out of contract with the Chairboys this summer but will now stay at the Sky Bet League One side.

Wycombe have not disclosed the length of Gape's new contract.

Burton Bradstock's Gape enjoyed a superb end to the 2021/22 season, marshalling the Wycombe engine room to widespread acclaim from the Wanderers' faithful.

Gape's efforts helped the Chairboys reach the League One play-off final at Wembley, where they were beaten 2-0 by Sunderland in May.

After struggling with injury for much of last season, Gape returned with a bang to play the final ten matches of the campaign.

According to FotMob, the defensive midfielder amassed 626 minutes and recorded one assist, creating three chances.

However, his groundwork in midfield provides the most telling statistic, as Gape made ten clearances and 13 interceptions, ensuring the Dorset man proved a constant nuisance for opposing teams.

Gape will now have the chance to build on his 188 appearances for Wycombe, which have stretched over a four-month loan in 2016 and a permanent deal since January 2017.

Ex-Southampton man Gape was one of three key signings announced by Wycombe, with skipper Joe Jacobson and Lewis Wing also penning deals.

Wycombe begin their pre-season training next week ahead of their opening league fixture of 2022/23 at home to Burton Albion on Saturday, July 30.
