Striker set for exit
Sam Surridge will be on his way out of Bournemouth this month with Oxford in League One looking to land him on loan.
The 20-year-old has been recalled from his loan spell at League Two Oldham where he netted 12 goals from 20 appearances including a penalty in their FA Cup win over Fulham on Sunday.
He is now expected to go and play at a higher level and Oxford boss Karl Robinson has made it clear he is a frontman he has watched and would like to have.
Speaking to the Oxford Mail, Robinson said: “His goal record is good so if you’re looking at somebody who is available, I think he would be on a lot of people’s lists.
“He’s been out on loan so it’s not just like he’s scored goals in under-23s football.
"It’s glaringly obvious we need a striker and someone who has scored the amount of goals he has for someone so young, there’s obviously going to be a connection there.
“He came on with 25 minutes to go and made a difference.”
