The 33-year-old former Reading forward, who scored 12 times for Sheffield United last season, signed a two-year deal at the Kassam last month and admitted there was strong interest elsewhere.

"I had lots of interest from clubs in a wide range of divisions," he told the Oxford Mail.

"Two Championship teams made me offers, but I felt I wouldn't play much there and would be used more for helping bring on some youngsters.

"That's not me at this stage of my career, I want to be playing every week.

"Oxford really wanted me. They made a big play for me and I was flattered by their interest. Everything ticked the right boxes."

ever ceases to amaze me when ex players come out with comments like that. Clearly they have zero interest in the best interests of a club that provided them with a living to be making such idiotic and boorish comments as that. Shame on you Jimmy Case.
