WEMBLEY hero Ashley Chambers is eager to strike a new deal at Bootham Crescent and remain at a “club on the up”.

The out-of-contract York City forward firstly has some international business to take care of as he is part of the England ‘C’ team made up of non-League players that will take on their Russian counterparts at the Khimky Arena home of Dynamo Moscow next Tuesday.

The chances are he will then become ineligible for the England ‘C’ side as he makes the step up to the Football League – which he hopes will be with the Minstermen.

“Of course I would like to stay,” said the 22-year-old of next season’s plans.

“We’ll have to wait and see what happens and what the manager has in mind. We’ll take it as it comes. I’ll enjoy it with England and then enjoy my break after that – it’s been a long season.”

Chambers played a major part in City’s Wembley double – setting up both goals in the FA Trophy win over Newport and smashing home the equaliser in the 2-1 Blue Square Bet Premier play-off final victory against Luton. That was his tenth goal of the season, while he was also the Minsterman with most assists in 2011/12.

His one-year deal at Bootham Crescent – he made his loan move from Leicester City permanent last summer – is now up.

But, as regards potential talks over a new deal, he added: “It’s a great club with great fans and, with the stadium, everything is on the up. With getting back into the Football League, this club is going on to bigger and better things and it’s a great time to be at the place.”
