Oxford United have completed the loan signing of Southampton forward Lee Holmes.

The left-sided attacker joins the Us for an initial month and is eligible to face Dagenham in League Two on Tuesday evening.

Holmes began his career with Derby, making over 50 appearances, and has turned out for the Saints on 11 occasions this season.

Oxford boss Chris Wilder told the club's official website: "Lee has tremendous ability and has played at a good standard all of his career.

"He makes things happen and is a player I have admired for a very long time."
