KARL Robinson hopes Sean Clare’s loan move to Burton Albion is Oxford United’s last exit of the January transfer window.

The 24-year-old joined Sky Bet League One’s bottom side yesterday in a deal that will last for the rest of the season.

Clare’s temporary departure follows Joel Cooper’s return to Northern Irish side Linfield until the summer, while John Mousinho is set to have a knee operation that will mean he plays no further part in the remainder of the campaign.

It leaves United with three spaces in their first-team squad, which is limited to 22 players aged over 21.

Speaking after the U’s beat Cambridge United 1-0 in the Papa John’s Trophy third round, Robinson insisted more transfer activity was still to come.

“I know who I want, so we’ll wait to see whether we can make things happen,” he said.

“There’s so many different complications when it comes to transfers.

“If someone comes in for somebody who I don’t think is right to go out but it makes it financially viable to do something I really want, it makes my decision a bit different.

“I don’t really want to lose anybody else from the squad right now.”
