OXFORD United have tabled two more bids for players following a recruitment meeting in Glasgow on Saturday.

The opening game of pre-season, which the U’s lost 5-0 to Rangers at Ibrox, was an opportunity for key figures to sit down face-to-face.

And following a lengthy discussion with chairman Sumrith ‘Tiger’ Thanakarnjanasuth, boss Karl Robinson revealed fresh approaches have been made.

He said: “We’ve put money on the table for two players.

“Whether they decide to come, or whether there are options out there (I don’t know).

“They are adventurous ones. We’ve tried everything we possibly can and we’ll see where it goes.”

Tariqe Fosu and Alex Rodriguez Gorrin are the only deals United have got across the line for senior players so far this summer.

An offer for Chris Cadden was accepted by Motherwell last month and although he has been linked with a move to Columbus Crew, it has been reported the 22-year-old could be loaned back to the U’s by the MLS side.

Robinson wants another five signings and met a striker on his drive back south last night in an attempt to make progress.

While there is still plenty of work to do, the head coach admitted it is a balancing act.

“You always have concerns, it’s just a case of getting it right and not forcing something that may be done too soon and doesn’t leave you options later on in the window,” he said.

“I’m meeting a striker on the way home tonight to have a conversation and see where their head is.

“I’m meeting another one tomorrow. But meeting them and getting them done are two different things.”

With Jamie Mackie sitting out the game in Scotland with a minor back issue, Gavin Whyte was deployed through the middle.

The Northern Ireland winger netted a hat-trick against Shrewsbury in April from a central role, while he also hit the target as a makeshift striker for ten-man United at Newport County early last season.

And Robinson intends to have another look at Whyte in the position with a view to using him as a striker next season.

He said: “Gav played up front twice last season and scored four goals. He got in twice against Rangers as well.

“He’s one of the best finishers in the club, so we’ll see.

“It’s an option and we want to see these things in pre-season.”
