MARCUS Browne will complete the season on loan at Oxford United.

Representatives from the winger’s parent club, West Ham United, visited the U’s training ground yesterday.

But the purpose of the trip was to discuss the path for the rest of the campaign, which will take place with United after a recall deadline passed this week.

Boss Karl Robinson is pleased Browne is staying.

He said: “When we signed Jordan Graham I know there were people who thought that meant Marcus was going.

“But we’ve always been in control of it and Marcus will certainly be here for the rest of the season.”

Only James Henry has scored more goals for the side this season than Browne, who has netted seven times.

Injury issues elsewhere this season mean Browne has made far more appearances than expected – 31 so far.

Recent weeks have seen the 21-year-old play with knocks and general fatigue, which has had an impact on performances.

Meanwhile, United are yet to make a final call on whether Ricky Holmes’s loan from Sheffield United will be cut short.
