CAMERON Brannagan has left Liverpool to join Oxford United for an undisclosed fee.

The midfielder, who had been with the Premier League giants since he was five, has signed a contract which will keep him with the U’s until 2021.

Brannagan made nine appearances for Liverpool in the 2015/16 season, but he has had experience of Sky Bet League One football since.

He made 14 appearances for Fleetwood Town on loan last season, including the second leg of the play-off semi-final defeat to Bradford City.

He said: “My agent came to me and said ‘Oxford are really keen’.

“So I came down to meet the manager (Pep Clotet) and he explained what he wanted from me.

“I went home and spoke to my family and it was only a yes.

“I’m keen to get started. Tomorrow I’ll meet all the lads and work hard in training to get my first start.”

Clotet said: "Cameron is a player with huge potential and someone that a lot of clubs have been monitoring for a long time.

"He has excellent technique, a good understanding of game and a real hunger to do well.

"One thing I really liked when I spoke to him was his ambition to play and come here and show people what he can do.

"We believe that he will be an excellent fit for what we are building here."
