Dean Wells has been an ever-present in the Boro back line this season

Teddy Sheringham says he is delighted that Dean Wells has committed his future to the club.

The central defender, who signed for Boro from Braintree Town in the summer of 2014 for £40,000, did have a contract with the club until the end of the current campaign but has now put pen to paper on a deal that will see him remain at the club for another two seasons.

He was the only centre-half kept on at the club after the end of last season, and speaking ahead of this weekend’s trip to Barnet Sheringham said: “I’m delighted that Deano has signed again.

“I think centre-halves, if they’re any good they need to play at football clubs for three, four, five years or even longer.
