Tisdale keen on double deal

Oakley: Target for Tisdale

Exeter boss Paul Tisdale is keen to tie up deals for trialists Jamie Cureton and Matt Oakley, who have impressed while on loan at the club.

The pair have been part of the Grecians pre-season programme and both enjoyed loan spells with the club last season.

Former Leicester midfielder Oakley, 34, is recovering from injury whilst striker Cureton, 36, was released by Leyton Orient.

"Jamie suits us down here, we suit him. If I can get that one established pretty quickly I'll be more than happy," Tisdale told BBC Sport.

"I've been more than happy to facilitate Matt's return from injury, he didn't play many games last year.

"He played half a dozen for us and that was about it, so if Matt would like to join us then there'll be a place for him."
