OXFORD United have made their first new signing of the summer after snapping up Jonathan Meades.

The 21-year-old midfielder joined Bournemouth in August 2012, but spent much of last season on loan at AFC Wimbledon, where he won their young player of the year award.

Meades, a Welsh under-21 international, joins on a two-year deal and is the first new face to join Chris Wilder's squad.

United also confirmed that Scott Davies and Deane Smalley have signed one-year deals with the club, both deals that have already been reported at oxfordmail.co.uk.

Wilder said of Meades's arrival: "Jonathan is a player who has always been very highly rated and did very well last season at this level.

"He is a strong player, has a decent pedigree and we feel he will make a very positive impact here at Oxford next season."
