Striker returns for a new spell at the Yellows
Oxford United have completed the signing of striker Rob Hall on a two year deal.
Many Oxford fans will remember Rob from his loan spell at the club as a 17-year-old from West Ham back in 2011. He scored five goals in that time and impressed everyone, playing up front or out wide during 13 appearances spread over two loans spells. After returning to West Ham he had loans at MK Dons and Birmingham before joining Bolton Wanderers on a full time deal in 2013.
He has since had two loans spells back at MK Dons before leaving Bolton this summer.
Michael Appleton said:
“He knows the club and knows what we are looking to build here. He has played most of his football at a higher level and is still only 22 so we believe that there is plenty more to come from him.
“It’s not a short-term signing because he is still coming back from injury and it will take a while to get him fit and involved, but once he does that he is certainly going to give us plenty of threat in those forward positions.”
“I thoroughly enjoyed my time here before and have always kept an eye out for how Oxford are doing; the fans were brilliant with me and I’ve never forgotten that. It has been great to see the club going from strength to strength. I have spoken a lot with Michael Appleton and know what he expects from me so it’s an exciting move and I can’t wait to get started.”
