JORDAN Graham is back training at Oxford United with a view to a move from Wolverhampton Wanderers in January, boss Karl Robinson has revealed.

The 23-year-old, who was a big hit for Michael Appleton's side during a brief loan in 2015, was a target for the U's in the summer.

He moved to Ipswich instead, but has only made four appearances for the Sky Bet Championship side this season and appears surplus to requirements.

United made an approach and it appears to put them in pole position when the window opens in January.

Robinson said: "He’s a player I tried to sign in the summer.

"When we saw he wasn’t playing for Ipswich we contacted Wolves and I said ‘can we be a home for him for two months’ in the hope we can get it done in January.

"They said yes and we spoke to the player, who basically wanted to walk here.

"He’s getting a place outside Oxford and will train with us for two months in the hope we get a deal done in January.

"It just shows the reputation we’ve got for young players here.

"People might wonder why would Jordan Graham come to a team who are where we are. It's because he knows we’re good.

"He trained yesterday and said it was one of the best training sessions he’s been involved in.

"It was a case of us requesting an opportunity from Wolves and they said it was fine.

"We tried to keep it quiet, but we’re open to the elements at the training ground so it was always a hard one, especially when he was so dominant when he was here."
