Oxford United dived into the transfer market again today by signing central midfielder Simon Heslop, from Barnsley.

The 23-year-old joins on a three-year contract and will bolster Chris Wilder's squad for the new season in League Two.

Heslop, who had been at Barnsley from a very young age, played under Wilder at Halifax and spent the last two months of last season on loan at Luton Town.
