Watford midfielder Jamie Hand has joined Oxford United on a month's loan.
Hand has struggled for first-team opportunities this season
Oxford boss Graham Rix made his move for the 20-year-old to cover for a number of injuries and will hand him a debut at home to Shrewsbury.
The former England U19 international, has played over 50 league games for Watford but not figured this season.
Watford boss Ray Lewington told their website: "He'll play at least five or six games at Oxford. Playing at that level will do him the world of good."
