David Connolly signs loan deal with Oxford United

David Connolly leaves Portsmouth to join Oxford United on loan.

Portsmouth's David Connolly has joined Oxford United on loan for the rest of the season.

The 36-year-old striker has been in and out of the team at Fratton Park in recent weeks following a number of injuries.

Connolly signed a two-year contract with Pompey last summer, but Richie Barker has decided that he can cope without the former Southampton player.

Speaking to Oxford's official website, Connolly said: "I am really looking forward to it. The club are in a very strong position and is set up for success and I want to play a part in that."

United are fifth in League Two.
