Whitehead to leave Oxford
Oxford midfielder Dean Whitehead looks set to leave after turning down the club's offer of a new contract.

The Abingdon-born 22-year-old was voted the player of the year by United's supporters but is now likely to move to Sunderland, whom he has had talks with.

Whitehead joined Oxford as a nine-year-old and made 101 starts for the U's, scoring nine goals in the process.

He was particularly impressive last season, attracting interest from a host of clubs, including Sunderland.
