OXFORD United are now unlikely to add to their squad before the January transfer window opens, according to Karl Robinson.

Striker Nicky Maynard is no longer training with the squad, having moved on to other interested clubs without receiving an offer from the U's.

The 31-year-old, who played for Robinson at Milton Keynes Dons, appeared for United's under 23 team in a friendly at Peterborough United on Monday.

But he is now training elsewhere.

Robinson, United's head coach, said: "He’s got other options at this moment and we already have three strikers so we are loaded in that area.

"I think there are more pressing issues in the team than that position. That’s where we sit right now.

"I think there are other areas where our money could be better spent.

"He’s gone to train with other clubs who are looking at him.

"I have my own views on this that I’ll keep internal, but I know he’d score goals."

With the transfer and loan windows shut, free agents like Maynard are the only players available to sign.

But Robinson, who met with chairman Sumrith 'Tiger' Thanakarnjanasuth last weekend, indicated United's focus was now on how they could strengthen in the new year.

He said: "We’re really looking to January and what we can do.

"Tiger’s words on Sunday were ‘we’re going to have to do something with the group we’ve got’."
