Well good morning. I can confirm that this morning Chris Hargreaves has passed a medical and has decided to sign for Oxford United Football Club. They have offered him a two-year deal which at the present moment in time I was not prepared to do.
Last season Chris helped stabilise the Football Club and helped take us all to another level. I would have been happy to keep Chris, and Chris would have been happy to stay. However I must also look to improve and Chris must also look for further security.
Chris Hargreaves is a model professional and he will always be welcome back to Griffin Park. He is a good professional, a good man and there is no doubt I will be happy to keep in touch with him in the future.
