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."
