Oxford United sign former Sheffield United striker Dave Kitson on a two-year deal.

Oxford United have signed former Sheffield United striker Dave Kitson on a two-year deal.

The 33-year-old was released by the Blades last week.

Kitson, who has also played for Reading, Stoke City and Portsmouth, will officially join Oxford on July 1.

"I had a number of clubs interested but the ambition and set-up here is excellent," he told Oxford's official website.

"It is a good club with a good manager and a very good squad. Oxford is the only League Two club that I considered because at this stage in my career I am looking to be part of a successful promotion campaign."

Kitson scored 12 times in 37 games for Sheffield United last season.
