Hall loan ends

Article by Dan Church Sunday, January 5th, 2014  

Oxford United midfielder Asa Hall has returned to his parent club Shrewsbury Town after his recent loan spell expired.

The 27 year-old rejoined United in July for the first-half of the league campaign, making 21 appearances for Chris Wilder’s men and finding the net three times before returning to his Division Three employers after New Year’s Day. Hall, who is out of contract this summer, returned to the Kassam Stadium on-loan just six months after departing the Us for Graham Turner’s side.

Despite returning to Shrewsbury, both manager Wilder and Hall himself have openly admitted their desire to keep the attacking midfielder at the club until the end of the season, while opposing boss Turner also claimed the current arrangement was “advantageous” to Oxford. It is understood that the ball lies in United’s court as they could re-sign Hall until May if they are willing to pay a greater proportion towards the player’s wages, but no deal has been struck yet between the two parties.

Meanwhile there’s news to bring you of two re-arranged matches for the Yellows involving the clubs league and cup runs. Firstly United’s FA Cup third-round tie away to Charlton Athletic was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch following an 11am inspection on Friday morning. Officials have announced that the postponed game shall take place at The Valley on Wednesday 8 January, kick-off 19:45pm. And lastly Oxford’s New Year’s Day clash away to Newport County has been rescheduled for Tuesday 18 February, another 19:45pm kick-off for the Us.
