Winnall finds a new home
Sam Winnall has dropped a division to sign for Oxford United.
The former Owls striker, who left the club in the Summer, joins on a two-year deal.
Winnall said: “I’ve been in contact with the gaffer and he’s made me really excited about the opportunity to come here and be successful.
“I think it’s a club going in the right direction.
“It’s got everything it needs to do that and I’m hoping that I can be a part of that and help the club along the way.”
He added: “I knew quite a lot of the players, having played against or with them previously and I knew this would be a place where we’d be playing the type of football I wanted to be involved in.”
I wasn’t born in Sheffield, as those of you who might have heard me on one of our podcasts may have picked up on pretty quickly.
