    Dan Crowley has signed a season-long loan deal with League One side Oxford United.

    The young Arsenal midfielder is part of the England U19 set-up and spent the first half of the 2015-16 season on loan with Barnsley.

    Crowley, who has also featured at youth level football for the Republic of Ireland, is yet to make a senior appearance for Arsenal but did travel with the Gunners squad for their pre-season tour of Singapore last summer before making his loan move.

    "I'm glad to have the opportunity here. It's obviously a club that is going places and did really well last season so I'm looking forward to settling in, working hard in pre-season and being part of a successful side again this time around." He said on the club's official website.

    United manager Michael Appleton added: "He is a really talented player, very creative and good on the ball. He sees a pass and an opportunity very quickly and can play just behind the striker, in midfield or coming in off the flanks so he offers us plenty of options."

    "He has a fantastic future ahead of him and it's great that Oxford is starting to build a reputation as a club where we can work with young players like Dan, nurture them and play a role in their development."

    Before adding: "At the same time we will only do so if we believe it benefits and strengthens the squad here and I think he definitely fits that bill."
