Seventh Summer Signing

Oxford United have made their seventh signing of the summer with the arrival of Ipswich midfielder, Idris El Mizouni.

The 23-year-old has reportedly put pen to paper on a three year deal, costing the club around £400,000.

The midfielder has spent the last two seasons on loan at Leyton Orient and put in a string of positive displays for the O’s.

Speaking to the club after signing, he said: “I’m absolutely delighted to join the club. It’s a solid club that has made a step up to the Championship and it was very attractive to me.

“It’s a team that always likes to play football and I want to be a part of that and move upwards with the club.

“I want to prove myself as a player and prove to everyone that I can play at this level. More importantly, I want to help the club achieve their ambitions.”

Des Buckingham added: “Idris brings a lot of qualities that fit into the profile we were looking for to continue developing the dynamic of our midfield.

“He has shown over the last few seasons his strong attributes that will allow us to play different ways while being another young player with huge further potential.

“I’m excited to work with him and continue to help develop his skill set as we move forwards into the Championship.

“It’s fantastic that we have brought him in at a time where he can join the group over here in Spain which will help him adapt to our environment quickly as we prepare for the first of the upcoming pre-season games.”
