Oxford United can confirm that midfielder Ahmed Kashi has joined the club on loan from Troyes until the end of the season.
The 30-year-old Algerian international previously worked with Head Coach Karl Robinson at Charlton, and told us that the chance to link up again with his former boss was a big reason to join the U’s.
“That was the main reason” he told iFollow. “I liked working with him before and I came and looked around the club and was very impressed. I believe Oxford are in a false position in the league, there are a lot of very good players here and I am really looking forward to being part of this team.”
Karl told us
“He is a terrific character, a real winner and that little bit of experience we need right now. He can sit in midfield and knit things together and in him and John Mousinho we now have two really good players for that position. He trained today and will be part of our planning for a massive game on Saturday when we are at home to Portsmouth.”
Ahmed will be involved at the weekend provided international clearance is received.
