Tom Newey: Back at the Kassam

Hall, who made 82 appearances for the U's between 2010 and 2012, spent last season with Shrewsbury and joins United on a six-month loan.

Former Rotherham and Cambridge left-back Newey joins on a one-year deal after leaving Scunthorpe.

"They are both very experienced solid players and they add a bit of depth," manager Chris Wilder told the club's official website.

"Tom adds balance on the left side of defence and is a very good organiser as well as a good player. Asa showed us towards the end of his first spell here what a good player he can be at this level."

Oxford have already signed David Hunt, Jon Meades, Danny Rose, Josh Shama and Dave Kitson ahead of their first pre-season game at Ardley on Saturday.

ou spend £200 million in one year and you say 3 years to win the title, I don't think the Man U board signed you to win the title in 3 years after shelling out that sort of cash. Spending that sort of money you should be challenging for the title in this season, not getting an early excuse in to try appeasing the fans and board.

guess Storey was able to cancel his planned trip to the shops this weekend. He won't need to buy any food for a while because he's really dining out on those Angel/angel puns. It's going to be a long season.
