OXFORD United have signed striker Kane Hemmings from Dundee to bolster their attacking options.

The 24-year-old signed a three-year contract after the U’s paid an undisclosed fee.

The amount is not believed to be close to the club record, the £470,000 paid to Aberdeen for Dean Windass in 1998, but it is in six figures.

He said: "I'm delighted to be here now and looking forward to getting going.

"Oxford are an ambitious club with an ambitious manager and a good squad - I watched them in the JPT final last season.

"Everything about the club just seems right.

"You like a manager who can develop a player to the best of their ability, hopefully I will be another one of those players and I can succeed here by scoring some goals."

Hemmings was the second top scorer in the Scottish Premier League last season, behind Celtic’s Leigh Griffiths, bagging 21 goals in 34 starts.

He netted 25 times in all competitions and is already up and running this season, scoring three times in two Scottish League Cup ties.

But the former Glasgow Rangers and Barnsley frontman was left out of the side which lost 2-1 at Peterhead on Tuesday night and flew down to complete the move today.

United hope Hemmings will help the void left by last season's top-scorer Kemar Roofe, who joined Leeds United for £3m earlier this month.

A loan deal for another signing is due to be finalised tomorrow.
