Oxford snap up experienced defender

Published Add your comment

Oxford have signed Bury defender Ben Futcher on loan until January.

The experienced centre-half is Chris Wilder's second loan signing of the week after the arrival of Paul Wotton from Southampton and is likely to go straight into the Us squad for the trip to Rotherham.

"I'm glad to be here. I got wind of it a couple of days ago so it's happened quite quick so I'm absolutely delighted to be here," Futcher told Oxford's official website. "I've played against Oxford a few times so I know what they are all about. I'm looking forward to coming here and there's a job to do."

He added: "They are obviously on a sticky run at the minute so I've got some hard work to do to help Oxford turn it around. The gaffer knows what I'm about, he worked with me at Bury so he's brought me in and hopefully I can do well.

"I'm here until January so my aim is to do as well as I can and help Oxford get some results and see where it takes us."
