Jon-Paul Pittman has joined Crawley from Oxford on a three-month loan deal.
Pittman, who has previously enjoyed a spell at the Red Devils, has been frustrated by a lack of first-team opportunities at the Kassam Stadium.
The winger signed on from Wycombe in the summer but has started only once for Oxford, making five substitute appearances.
Pittman will be ineligible for Crawley when they face United in League Two on November 19.
