ISAAC Buckley-Ricketts has become the second player to join Oxford United from a Premier League side in less than 24 hours.

The 19-year-old winger has signed from Manchester City on loan until the end of the season, following Cameron Brannagan’s permanent move from Liverpool.

Buckley-Ricketts was at the Kassam Stadium yesterday to agree the move.

The formalities were not completed until this morning, but he is available to play against Walsall tomorrow.

He said: “It’s been brewing for a while, it's more been about me making the decision.

“Coming off a loan already, to jump back out on loan again you have to be very careful with the decision you make because it can be crucial to where it leads you in your career.

“I really like the way they play with the ball. It’s not hoofing football which some people talk about, it’s very attractive.

“I was very encouraged when I spoke to the manager.”

While he has not played for Pep Guardiola’s first team, he played top-flight football in the Netherlands this season with FC Twente.

Buckley-Ricketts was also part of the England side which won the UEFA European Under-19 Championship last July.

United boss Pep Clotet said: “He is very fast, very skilful and I think the Oxford fans will like him because he is exciting to watch and always looking to make things happen.

“He is still very young but I know that he is very highly thought-of at Manchester City who believe this is an important step in his development.

“It is great to hear once again that Oxford are held in such esteem and we will do all we can to help him continue to progress while playing an important role in the team.”
