ASA Hall is set to seal a move back to Oxford United – 12 months after leaving the club.

The midfielder turned down the offer of a new contract at the Kassam Stadium at the end of the 2011/12 season.

He instead agreed a two-year deal at League One side Shrewsbury, but found starting opportunities limited at the Greenhous Meadow.

The 26-year-old finished last season suffering demotion to the Conference during a loan stint with strugglers Aldershot.

However, it appears he is not in the plans of Shrewsbury manager Graham Turner, who is happy to loan him out again.

Hall joined United on their four-day ‘boot camp’ in Wigan and will train with Chris Wilder’s side this week.

It is expected the former Birmingham City trainee will finalise a six-month loan spell with United this week.

Hall was signed by Wilder after being released by Luton in 2010.

He went on to make 82 appearances for United, finding the net on 11 occasions.

The highlight of his spell came when he scored the opening goal in the 2-0 win over Swindon Town at the Kassam Stadium in March 2012.

Hall finished that season in fine form, and United supporters will be hoping he can pick up where he left off if his loan deal goes through without a hitch.
