Oxford United have completed the signing of midfielder Alex Rodriguez Gorrin on an initial two-year deal, the club has confirmed.
The former Motherwell star was reportedly the subject of interest from other League One sides including Portsmouth and Ipswich, but he has instead opted for a move to Karl Robinson’s ambitious side.
Gorrin signed for Motherwell last summer and enjoyed an impressive season in the Scottish Premiership, where he became a regular in Steve Robinson’s side by making 20 appearances at the heart of midfield.
United confirmed the move via the club’s Twitter account on Thursday evening.
