OXFORD United have no plans to bring in a loan signing to cover for Charlie Raglan’s injury.

The centre back is set to have surgery on Monday after rupturing two ankle ligaments in training last week.

Specialists estimate it will take three or four months for Raglan to return, but U’s boss Pep Clotet is not looking for a replacement.

He said: “I think we have enough talent in the squad to be able to face any minor problems that could occur.

“We have a lot of options in the squad that we could move around. I would like it to stay as it is.”

News on the extent of the injury came after United had loaned out centre back Fiacre Kelleher to Solihull Moors.

There is no recall clause in the deal, which runs to January, but Clotet insisted even if there was one, it is better in the long run for the 21-year-old to stay and play for the Vanarama National League side.

He said: “The plan when he signed was to assess him and then loan him out to get some games.

“The plan is to follow that, we want him to play as many games as he can and then assess him again.”
