Oxford near signing of MLS defender 

Oxford are making strong progress in their pursuit of Philadelphia Union defender Stuart Findlay , as per a Twitter update from journalist Tom Bogert, with the MLS defender seeing limited minutes for his current club.

Featuring nearly 150 times for Kilmarnock in three different spells with the Scottish outfit, Findlay has also spent time with Celtic and Newcastle United.

Representing Scotland all the way through youth level, the 26-year-old made his senior debut for his nation back in 2019, scoring his side’s fifth goal in a 6-0 rout of San Marino.

Future of James Norwood

A report from TWTD in late April claimed that Oxford United held an immediate interest in James Norwood following his Ipswich exit.

A week ago, Football Insider claimed that Bristol Rovers were leading the race for the released Ipswich man, with Oxford set to miss out. 

However, it remains to be seen how the Gas are progressing in their move. 

Certainly, Norwood is a third-tier operator who could add a lot of value for the majority of clubs in the division.
