JOSH Ruffels says he would happily spend the rest of his career at Oxford United.

The left back, who signed from Coventry City in July 2013, made his 300th U’s appearance against Portsmouth in midweek.

Initial talks have taken place over extending his contract, which expires this summer, and the Oxford-born 27-year-old is looking to the future.

“I don’t think any player wants to be sat in the summer not knowing," he told BBC Radio Oxford’s Five Minute Fans Forum.

“We had negotiations early on in the season and it has gone a little bit quiet.

"There’s no reason for it not to be sorted out.

“Staying here and seeing my career out would be unbelievable.

“I love living here, my girlfriend loves living here and having all your family and friends around you is something you really take for granted.”
