Paul Wotton has joined Oxford United on loan for two months.

The 33 year-old midfielder has recently recovered from a back injury which has limited his chances in the first team so far this season.

Wotton, who has over 500 professional games of experience to his name, joins the U's until January.

Oxford were knocked out of the FA Cup at the weekend by Burton Albion, so will be concentrating on their league record having earned promotion back into League Two last season under the guidance of former Saints trainee Chris Wilder.
