Oxford United are pleased to announce that Burnley striker Dan Agyei has agreed to join the U’s.
Dan, 22, is originally from Kingston-on Thames and was with AFC Wimbledon as a youngster. Having scored 35 goals for them in one season, 2014/15, he was snapped up by Burnley where he has enjoyed loan spells at Coventry City, Walsall and Blackpool.
He joins the U’s on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee and Head Coach Karl Robinson told us:
“Everyone will see straight away that he has plenty of pace but there is more to his game than that and he has a terrific attitude, which is important. We’ve seen a lot of him at under 23 level and we know he scores goals as well as stretching the game.
“The fans have been patient and the last week or two have seen plenty of new signings: there are still a couple more to come but Dan gives us something different and will be an exciting player for the fans to watch. It will take a week or two before he is involved because he’s not really had a pre-season, but he is fit, he came through he medicals with glowing reports and we are happy to have the chance to work with him ”
Dan told us
“I came down and took a look around and really liked the set up at the club. The training ground, the staff, the players: it is a very ambitious place and I really liked the way everything is done. I’ll be there to watch the Peterborough game today and then the hard work starts on Monday to get match sharp and try and help the team as part of a successful season.”
