The 27-year-old, who captained the Millers to automatic promotion back in April, spent a brief loan spell at the Kassam last season where he scored twice in eight appearances.

After passing a medical he has returned to the U's on a three-year deal.

"I had a great time when I was here last year, so I'm looking forward to pulling on the yellow shirt again," he told Oxford's official website.

"Having fought so hard to get Rotherham up last season, I wasn't planning on playing in League Two again. However, I believe that this time next year Oxford will be a League One side anyway and I'm looking forward hugely to helping make that happen and then moving onwards and upwards with the club from there."

Manager Chris Wilder added: "I'm delighted to have been able to bring Johnny back to the club.

"He is a top-quality defender and is the final piece in our jigsaw. He has had a good pre-season with Rotherham so can come in and hit the ground running."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
