Oxford United have signed Scottish international Chris Cadden on a season-long loan deal from Columbus Crew.
The 22-year-old previously made over 120 appearances for Motherwell.
Cadden joined the MLS club after his Well contract ended this summer and the Scottish club are now seeking compensation over their academy graduate.
Oxford United head coach Karl Robinson said: "Chris is a full international who we have admired for a while now."
Motherwell face missing out on 280,000 euros for Cadden, as MLS sides have not yet been categorised for training fees.
The Scottish Premiership side remain in negotiations with US Soccer, Columbus and the MLS seeking a resolution.
