Oxford United are pleased to announce that midfielder Alex Rodriguez-Gorrin has signed a new one-year deal with the club.
The 28-year-old has made 101 appearances since signing from Motherwell in the summer of 2019 and is now close to full fitness again after missing the second half of last season with a knee injury.
“That was so frustrating” he told us “watching the team and seeing us go so close to promotion again but knowing I couldn’t play a part. But I have been working hard all summer and will hopefully get a good pre-season and be able to play a full part in what we hope will be a successful season.
“I love being at Oxford- the players and staff are a very tight group and the fans have been amazing with me. I can’t wait to report back and get going again.”
Alex joins Elliott Moore in agreeing a new deal after the skipper signed a new contract yesterday. Boss Karl Robinson told us
“Alex is a massive part of this group, on and off the pitch. He is a terrific character, a winner, and a very good player. We will be sensible with him during pre-season but all the scans and reports are really encouraging. He is a great pro who we know will follow the advice to allow him to get back out there as quickly as possible and be part of what we are building for the new season.”
