OXFORD United left back Michael Elechi has joined Chippenham Town on loan.

The 19-year-old will spend the next month with the Vanarama National League South side, who are fifth in the table.

Elechi has made three appearances for the U’s, all of them starts in the Papa John’s Trophy, including last Tuesday’s defeat at Cambridge United.

The first two came against Bristol Rovers and Walsall in last season’s group stage.

He joined Oxford City on loan in February, but the National League South campaign was curtailed less than a fortnight later.

At the end of 2020/21, United triggered an option to extend the contract Elechi agreed back in December 2018.

The defender played several times for the first-team in pre-season, but could not feature in a competitive game until last week after catching Covid at the end of July

He is the second member of United's Under 21 side to go out on loan in 24 hours, after Tyler Goodrham joined Hayes & Yeading United yesterday.
