  • "Not sure that this is the end of the 'clear out', I reckon two or three players already on contract will be listed tomorrow. There is no way Waddock can rebuild by just releasing three of the squad plus the three loanees. As for Constable, I am certainly not against a new contract, probably on reduced terms. If he stay as our second or even third choice up front, all well and good. He is a very good club man and when you speak to him, he is Oxford through and through. Hope he accepts the terms offered and maybe a really good front man signing will inspire him. A lot of his problems may just be due to us failing to have an attacking coach."

James Constable has been offered the chance to stay at Oxford United following contract talks with the squad at the Kassam Stadium this morning.

The U's have also taken up the 12-month option on skipper Jake Wright's contract, but Deane Smalley, Sean Rigg and Scott Davies have been released.

Tom Newey will meet with head coach Gary Waddock tomorrow to discuss his future.

Wayne Brown, who was on a player/coach contract, will not be offered playing terms, but talks will follow about a coaching role.

Michael Raynes, whose original contract expired this summer, will stay after making enough appearances this season to activate a clause keeping him at the club for an additional 12 months.

Loan trio Ryan Williams, David Connolly and Nicky Wroe have all returned to their parent clubs.
