WITH the summer transfer window now over, Oxford United know the squad that will take them through to January.

Deadline day was still in full flow when Karl Robinson brought up the subject of contracts, saying he hoped Dan Agyei signed a new deal amid loan interest from ‘five or six’ managers.

The forward is one of 13 U’s players whose terms expire next summer – here is a brief round-up of that group.


The 24-year-old signed on a three-year deal from Premier League side Burnley in 2019.

Agyei has mostly been used as a substitute during his time at United, starting just 23 of his 77 appearances, but has often made a big difference off the bench – particularly at the end of last season.

Robinson publicly backed the forward in the central position on deadline day, adding: “There’s something about Dan that I really believe in.”


The winger joined United on a one-year deal this summer, having been released by Sky Bet Championship side Preston North End.

Bodin has struggled to stay fit in recent years, but showed flashes of class in his three U’s appearances to date.

The bad luck struck again with a knee injury against Crewe Alexandra on August 17 and he remains on the sidelines.


The 19-year-old signed a one-year contract with the option of an extra 12 months over the summer – his first professional deal.

Chambers-Parillon has started United’s three cup games this season, playing in both full-back positions.

United triggered the option in the left back’s contract, agreed back in December 2018, at the end of last season.

The 19-year-old started at Cambridge United last week and yesterday joined Vanarama National League South side Chippenham Town on a one-month loan.

The 27-year-old has been United’s go-to right back so far this season as Sam Long continues his recovery from injury.

Forde’s previous contract expired at the end of last season, but he signed a new one-year deal in July.


Like Chambers-Parillon, the teenager agreed his first professional deal over the summer and his was also a one-year contract, with the option of an extra year.

Goodrham, 18, made his full debut at Cambridge last week and will spend the next month on loan at Hayes & Yeading United in Pitching In Southern League Premier South.

The midfielder is in his third season at United and is closing in on 100 appearances.

United triggered one-year extensions to Gorrin’s and Mark Sykes’s deals at the end of April to keep them at the club for another campaign.

The 28-year-old has started every Sky Bet League One game this season, other than the opening-day draw at Cambridge.


The midfielder is in the final 12 months of the four-year deal he signed after joining from Derby County in August 2018.

Hanson’s time at United has been heavily disrupted by injuries, restricting him to 82 appearances in three campaigns.

The 25-year-old is currently recovering from a dislocated shoulder he sustained in pre-season.

Now in his fifth season at United, the midfielder is as important as ever.

Henry is the club’s top-scorer in 2021/22, finding the net four times, and his hat-trick against Lincoln City last month pushed him past 50 U’s goals as he nears 200 games.

He turned 32 over the summer, but if he keeps producing his current form United will surely want to keep him beyond the end of next season.

Like Agyei, the centre back is in the final 12 months of the three-year deal agreed when he arrived in summer 2019.

Moore, 24, was captain for most of last season and played every league minute, although a chest infection kept him out for a fortnight last month.


United triggered the option in the Under 21 striker’s deal at the end of last season.

Spasov is another who has been unlucky with injuries and has not played for the U’s since he made two appearances in 2018/19.

The 19-year-old was on loan at Vanarama National League side Woking last season, before a knee problem ended his campaign.


The 24-year-old’s next appearance will be his 100th in a United shirt.

Sykes’s April contract extension took his U’s stay into a fourth season and he scored his fourth goal for the club at AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.

He has been used on the right wing and in central midfield so far in 2021/22.


The striker’s deal expires at the end of the season, but United have the option to extend it by another year.

Winnall brings up a year at the club on Saturday and has scored six goals in 37 appearances, although 27 of them have been from the bench.


Nathan Holland, Gavin Whyte, Jordan Thorniley and Herbie Kane are all on season-long loans.
