Ghanaian-born Dan Agyei joins English side Oxford United

The English League One side have announced the signing of the English-born of Ghanaian descent in the ongoing transfer window.

Oxford United have officially signed Ghanaian striker Dan Agyei from English Premier League side Burnley FC.
 
The 22-year-old has joined the Yellow and Black lads on a three-year deal from Burnley for an undisclosed fee.
 
The club's official statement reads "Oxford United are pleased to announce that Burnley striker Dan Agyei has agreed to join the U’s."
 
Dan, 22, is originally from Kingston-on Thames and was with AFC Wimbledon as a youngster. 
 
“I came down and took a look around and really liked the set up at the club. The training ground, the staff, the players: it is a very ambitious place and I really liked the way everything is done," Agyei told the club's official website.
 
"I’ll be there to watch the Peterborough game today and then the hard work starts on Monday to get match sharp and try and help the team as part of a successful season.”
 
Having scored 35 goals for them in one season, 2014/15, he was snapped up by Burnley where he has enjoyed loan spells at Coventry City, Walsall and Blackpool.
 
Agyei is eligible to play for either Ghana or England in future.
