JAMES Henry has his sights set on adding a fourth promotion from League One to his CV after becoming Oxford United’s latest signing.

The 28-year-old winger arrived at the club’s pre-season training camp in Portugal yesterday afternoon after agreeing a three-year contract.

Henry, who was a free agent after being released by Wolverhampton Wanderers this summer, spent last season on loan at Bolton Wanderers.

He made 35 appearances, scoring twice, as Phil Parkinson’s side finished runners-up.

It followed third tier promotions with Wolves in 2013/14 and Millwall four seasons earlier – and he has come to United to repeat the feat.

The former Reading trainee said: “I’ve been in this league three times and promoted every time.

“Hopefully I can help some of the younger boys and push on myself.

“This club has the potential to get themselves in the Championship.

“Everyone wants to play at the highest level and I’m no different.”

As with the deal for Jon Obika, which was completed last week, United registered an interest in Henry when Michael Appleton was in charge, before his departure led to a delay while Pep Clotet was appointed.

Henry was happy to bide his time and wait for the recruitment process to conclude, even though there was interest from elsewhere.

He said: “There were a couple (of other clubs), there always is, but as soon as Oxford came in with their firm interest it was pretty set in my mind where I was going to go.

“With the new manager coming in it took a bit longer to see the squad and what he needed.

“Obviously I’m delighted to get it over the line and really looking forward to getting going.

“I looked into him as well and he’s got a very good background, doing fantastically over the last few years.

“We spoke a couple of times over the phone and I really liked the gist of what he was coming here to do.

“It definitely made it an easier decision.”

Henry was just a spectator for United’s 0-0 draw with Middlesbrough in Albufeira last night.

He will train with the squad for the first time this morning and is expected to make his debut against Hull City on Saturday.

He said: “I might be a bit rusty with the ball in the first couple of sessions.

“I don’t think I’ll be too far behind. I’m looking forward to it, there’s only so many 1km runs you can do on your own.”
