Oxford boss Robinson thanks Klopp after landing Liverpool winger Woodburn

Oxford United boss Karl Robinson is delighted with their deal for Liverpool winger Ben Woodburn.

Woodburn has joined Oxford on loan for the coming season.

Robinson was quick to thank Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and loan and pathways director Julian Ward for their help in concluding the deal.

He said: "Ben is a talented lad who we are excited to bring into the building for the season.

"He has a lot of experience for his age at Liverpool and with the Welsh national team so we are absolutely delighted to bring in a player of his quality and are looking forward to being a part of his development.

"We'd like to extend our thanks to Jurgen Klopp, Julian and Ben's agent for trusting us and having the faith to continue his development at a League One football club."
