Watford striker signs on six-month loanOxford United have today signed Alex Jakubiak from Watford on loan until January.
Alex is a 17-year-old striker who made his debut for Watford in the last game of last season, having spent the last half of the season on loan at Conference outfit Braintree Town, where he scored his first senior goal.
Alex, who won his first Scotland under-19 cap against Belgium last night, was delighted to join Oxford, saying “This is a really good move for me. Oxford are an exciting club that play football the right way and I feel that I can help them achieve something this season.”
United head coach Michael Appleton was also pleased with the signing: “Alex brings us some depth to our attacking options and will compete for the positions up top. He is fast and direct and fits in to what we’re trying to build here. I’d like to thank Watford for allowing him to join us until January.”
