Oxford United have completed the signing of 28-year-old winger James Henry.
James started his career at Reading, spending time at Nottingham Forest, Bournemouth and Norwich on loan before spending four years at Millwall. He then moved on to Wolverhampton Wanderers for three seasons, making over 120 appearances before spending much of last season on loan at Bolton Wanderers, who he helped to promotion from League 1.
He flew out to Portugal this morning to join up with the United squad for their pre-season training camp and told us:
“It’s an exciting move for me. Oxford are a club making great progress and they were very impressive last season. The new Manager has a fantastic reputation within football and I can’t wait to meet up with the lads and join training this week.”
Manager Pep Clotet said;
“ He has played a lot of football in the Championship and has real quality. He knows this league and been successful in it before: he has been promoted from it three times and we look forward to working with him.”
James will be at tonight’s game against Middlesbrough but not involved in the squad. He is likely to feature for the first time when then U’s play Hull City on Saturday in Albufeira.
