Oxford bag Basham
Oxford United manager Ian Atkins has continued his summer re-building with the capture of former Southampton and Preston North End striker Steve Basham.

The 24-year-old will become Atkins' seventh summer signing once he has passed a medical at the Kassam Stadium.

Basham left Preston at the end of last season after seeing out his three-year contract at Deepdale, awarded on the back of a prolific loan spell during which he scored 10 times in 15 starts.

The Southampton-born forward was never able to repeat that form as a permanent member of the Preston squad with a broken leg keeping him out of action for a lengthy spell.

Basham scored just once in the First Division last season in 16 substitute appearances, but impressed Atkins during a trial spell at Oxford.

He is now looking to fulfil the potential that saw him make a clutch of Premiership appearances as a substitute in his Southampton days.
