KYRAN Lofthouse has become the third Oxford United player to join Woking on loan for a month.

The 20-year-old, who can play at right back or right wing, has made two appearances for the U's in this season's EFL Trophy.

But United want him to go out and gain more experience, as he did successfully in a spell at Oxford City last season.

Malachi Napa and Slavi Spasov are already in the squad at Woking, who are fourth in the Vanarama National League.

U's boss Karl Robinson said: "It's important he gets some minutes.

"He's a young player with tremendous power and pace.

"Our games being called off (in League One) have been fantastic for the young players, because it's given them a real opportunity to play in these bounce games.

"We've had a better eye on all the younger players than ever before.

"We think some need to go out on loan and some need to hang around in the short-term while we're going through this sticky situation with the amount of games we're having to play."
