Marcus Browne has become the latest young Hammer to join Oxford United on loan.

The 20-year-old midfielder announced this morning that he had joined the Us on a season-long loan, following in the footsteps of fellow Hammers such as Toni Martinez and Robert Hall.

"Iím really happy to be here," Browne told local media. "I think itís the right move at the right time for me in my career.Hopefully I can get the stadium rocking for the right reasons.

"Iím just working on my fitness at the moment. Hopefully it shouldnít take too long and Iíll be ready to go in the next few weeks. Iím just excited to get out there and play in front of the fans."

Browne's arrival was welcomed by Oxford boss Karl Robinson, who saw fit to parade his new signing ahead of last night's friendly against Championship side Leeds United.

"Iím ecstatic to get it over the line," said Robinson. "He can be as good as he wants to be. Itís down to him to support his talent.

"Itís stand up and be counted with him now in his career. We shouldnít be getting him, but thereís a reason heís come to this level. We just hope we can make sure we do the right things to support his development.

"He has so much to offer. He is technically very good, he sees a pass and will score goals . He is very talented and we know there were a lot of clubs chasing him.

"He came along and we showed him the stadium, the pitch, the training ground and talked to him about the way we play and what our aims are for the season.

"I am absolutely thrilled that he chose to come here for the next part of what I am sure is going to be a fantastic career."
