ANTHONY Forde has become Oxford United’s second signing in as many days.

The right winger, 25, was a free agent and has agreed a two-year contract with Karl Robinson’s side, hot on the heels of Ben Woodburn’s arrival yesterday.

He told the club's website: “I have always admired the way Karl Robinson’s sides play the game.

"They are good attacking teams and that will suit the way I want to play. I know the club is ambitious and I can't wait to get started now.”

Forde was part of the Rotherham United side who won promotion from Sky Bet League One two seasons ago.

He scored in the 3-1 win against the U’s in February 2018 and made 28 appearances for the Millers in the Championship last season.

Following their relegation he turned down a new contract with Paul Warne’s men.

Forde made 114 appearances for Rotherham in three seasons, having joined from Walsall in 2016.

Hailing from County Limerick in Ireland, he came through the youth system at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
