Exeter midfielder set for Kassam Stadium switch
Oxford United are delighted to announce that they have agreed a two year deal, with the option of an additional year, with Liam Sercombe, who will join the club from Exeter City.
Liam, 25, has made over 250 appearances for his home town club Exeter since joining as a trainee in 2007. A box to box midfielder with the ability to chip in with some spectacular goals, he was part of the Exeter side promoted from League Two in 2009 and is a player that Head Coach Michael Appleton has monitored for some time:
“First and foremost he is a very good player” Michael said. “He is a terrific competitor, he links things together well and every time we’ve watched him he has caught the eye. He has a lot of experience for someone who is still only 25 and we think he will be a major asset to this football club.”
“It’s exciting to be joining Oxford. I have been with Exeter since I was a kid so it was hard to leave but I know I have made the right decision. I wanted a new challenge and am really looking forward to being part of what Oxford are trying to build here.”
