Oxford manager Karl Robinson has secured his first signing of the summer by bringing in 17-year-old full-back Kevin Berkoe.
Berkoe, who startedhis career at Chelsea and spent two seasons with Wolves prior to his recent release, has signed a one-year deal.
Berkoe told the club’s official website: ‘I was with Chelsea from the age of nine and then did my scholarship at Wolves.
‘I played against Oxford in the under-23 cup last season and they were very impressive, so now I want to try and force my way into the first team here because it’s a club that gives youngsters that opportunity.
‘ Robinson added: ‘Look at his pedigree and you can see he has a lot of ability, and now he has the chance to push on and force his way in to the first team here.’
