Oxford United have completed the signing of Ateef Konate on loan from Nottingham Forest until the end of the season.
The 21-year-old forward has been in fine form for Forest’s Under 21 side this season with eight goals in his last eight games and was voted the Premier League 2 Player of the Month for October. The former Le Havre youngster told us:
“I am really looking forward to it. I have been made to feel very welcome and it’s a great club. I want to play games, score my first goal and help the team and I know there are two home games this week so I am really looking forward to training and then being part of it.”
Karl Robinson said:
“His scoring record this season is excellent. He can play all across the front line or as a 10, he is fast, very skilful and really exciting to watch. It’s great to get this over the line ahead of the Window closing and to have an extra day or two to work with him ahead of the game against Barnsley on Wednesday.”
Ateef will wear number 20 for the U’s. Want to sponsor his home, away or third kit? Then email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01865 337503 or 01865 337513
