DWIGHT Tiendalli has become the second Oxford United signing in the space of 24 hours.

The full back travelled to the club’s training camp in Portugal from Amsterdam this afternoon, agreeing a one-year deal shortly after passing a medical.

Tiendalli, who has two senior caps for the Netherlands, is the first signing with a direct link to new boss Pep Clotet, following time spent together at Swansea City.

He sat alongside Clotet during Saturday’s 3-0 win against Oxford City.

It is a big chance for the 31-year-old, who has missed the last two seasons due to knee and thigh injuries.

He said: “I was out for 18 months working on my recovery and getting as fit as possible.

“I’m now good to go and I think Oxford is a good platform for me to be back again.

“I know the gaffer and I’ve spoken to him.

“He tells me it’s a good club and I like the project, because they did very well last season in League One.

“It’s nice to be back on track and I’m grateful to Oxford for giving me the opportunity.”

Tiendalli came through the youth ranks at Ajax, before breaking into senior football with Utrecht.

A spell with Feyenood followed and he went on to win the Eredivisie title with FC Twente in 2009/10 under Steve McClaren.

Michael Laudrup brought him to Swansea City in 2012 and the defender came on during the Welsh side’s League Cup win against Bradford City at Wembley in his first season.

Tiendalli made only 46 appearances in three seasons with the Swans and his most recent competitive football came in May 2015, on loan at Middlesbrough.
