Oxford United are delighted to welcome left-back Steve Seddon who has joined the club for an undisclosed fee from Birmingham City.
The 23-year-old defender grew up in Berkshire before joining the Blues as a 14-year-old. He has spent loan time at Stevenage, AFC Wimbledon (twice) and Portsmouth where he played against the U’s in the 2020 play-off semi-final.
He joins on a three-year deal and Karl Robinson welcomed him by saying
“It’s good to get it over the line. It was basically sorted three weeks ago but you can take nothing for granted at the moment and circumstances beyond our control delayed it. To bring in someone who has played close to 100 first team games at 23 is great. He adds balance on the left, he is a good character, has lots of energy and I’m sure will give us that balance you need on that side of defence.”
Steve told us:
“I’m really looking forward to it. It’s a good set up here, really good facilities and a side that has reached the play-offs two years in a row. The Manager likes his sides to play attacking football but defensively they are always strong as well so hopefully I can settle in quickly and be part of another positive season for the club.”
Steve will be number 42 for the U’s. Want to sponsor his shirt? Then email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01865 337503
