Luke To Stay

23 January 2013

Defender signs until the end of the season

Oxford United have extended Luke O'Brien's stay at the club until the end of the season.

The 24-year-old left back has made seven appearances for the U's since signing in September and has now signed a contract which keeps him at the Kassam Stadium for the rest of the campaign.

Following recent postponements the U's have a busy schedule between now and the end of the season, playing 20 games in the next 13 weeks. Luke will provide cover on the left side of defence, especially with Liam Davis this week suffering a hamstring injury which is likely to keep him out of action for up to a month.

The former Bradford City and Exeter City defender was delighted to be staying for longer. He told

"I'm really pleased to have signed. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Oxford. The fans are excellent and we have worked very hard as a team to get into a good position in the league. I am looking forward to playing a part and trying to carry that on.

"It is great to have everything sorted and to know that I am here for longer. My partner is expecting our second child any day now so it is nice to have that little bit of extra security for the next few months. We have a tough game at Fleetwood on Saturday so right now I am totally focussed on helping the team get another three points."
