Oxford United have signed former Wimbledon player Jack Currie on a long-term deal for an undisclosed fee.

Last season the left-back made 45 appearances registering a goal and assist as AFC Wimbledon finished 10th in League Two.

"Jack fits in perfectly to the way we want to play and arrives with plenty of experience in league football," said head coach Des Buckingham.

"We believe he can make a positive impact on our current group and also has the type of character that will help us continue to drive and develop the culture and environment within our team."

Head of recruitment, Ed Waldron, described Currie as "a very exciting full-back" and added the club had been tracking the player "for a while".

The upcoming campaign will see the U's compete in the second tier of English football for the first time in 25 years, following their victory over Bolton in the League One play-off final in May.
