LEE Cox has signed on loan for Oxford United from rivals Swindon Town for the first half of the season.

The 22-year-old midfielder, can also play at right back, will make his debut for the U’s in a pre-season friendly at Didcot Town this evening.

Cox joined Swindon from Inverness Caledonian Thistle in January, but was unable to claim a regular place in the side, starting just twice.
