Oxford secure Osborne loan deal

Karleigh Osborne
Osborne wants first team experience in his time at Oxford United

Oxford United have signed 20-year-old defender Karleigh Osborne on a month's loan from League Two side Brentford.

The centre-back will go straight into the squad for the game at Northwich Victoria on Tuesday, 2 September.

Osborne told BBC Oxford that Brentford boss Andy Scott, who had a spell at the Kassam Stadium, recommended the move.

"He told me they were a good club, good set-up, good staff, good manager. I just want to get my head down and play some games," he said.

Oxford United have also confirmed that they have given short-term deals to midfielder Levi Reid and goalkeeper Ben Hinchcliffe.

Reid has been given a six-month contract, while Hinchcliffe has been given 12 months.
