OXFORD United will ‘go again’ in the summer transfer window, says chairman Grant Ferguson.

Former head coach Liam Manning was backed by the club’s board last summer, with fees paid for Greg Leigh and Max Woltman, on top of free transfer moves for Jordan Thorniley, Josh McEachran, Ruben Rodrigues and Mark Harris.

That investment was backed up in the January transfer window, as current boss Des Buckingham snapped up Owen Dale and Will Goodwin for undisclosed fees.

The U’s fought off strong interest from Charlton Athletic for the latter, with both clubs reportedly bidding about £400,000 for the striker.

Talking to BBC Radio Oxford’s The Dub podcast, Ferguson said: “I’ve never been told that we’re maxed out. If you go back to last summer, what we’ve been saying since then is a three-window strategy for this team.

“In some regards, we probably have done better this season than we thought we might’ve done.

“We did have a very good window in January, which is not always guaranteed, but I don’t think anyone around the club is saying this squad is the finished article.

“There’ll be contracts that come up in the summer, so we need to go again in the summer, and we will go again in the summer.”
