Oxford United have signed forward Gino van Kessel on a season-long loan from Czech Republic-based Slavia Prague.

The 24-year-old Dutchman joined Slavia just over a year ago but has since been on loan in Poland with Lechia Gdansk.

"We've been working for a while to work out this move to Oxford and things have worked out," Van Kessel told BBC Sport.

The Netherlands-born Curacao international is the club's fifth overseas signing since Pep Clotet's appointment as manager in July.

A statement on Slavia Prague's club's website said his move to Oxford had been agreed with a view to a permanent deal.
