Oxford Closing in On El Mizouni Deal
Friday, 5th Jul 2024 12:36

TWTD understands Town and Oxford United at close to agreeing a permanent transfer for Blues midfielder Idris El Mizouni.

A week ago, we revealed that the newly promoted Championship side were targeting the 23-year-old and we understand that deal is close to getting done with talks ongoing.

Town recently took up the one-year option in El Mizouni’s contract but the Paris-born schemer always seemed certain to move on to a Championship or League One club this summer.

Leyton Orient, where El Mizouni, has spent the last two seasons on loan were keen to bring him back to Brisbane Road but were priced out of the market. Derby County, who showed strong interest last summer, were understood to be watching the situation. Barnsley have also been linked.

El Mizouni, who has also had loan spells at Cambridge United and Grimsby, joined the Town youth set-up after a trial in 2017 and has made 16 starts and 10 sub appearances, scoring two goals.

Oxford, where former Blues Greg Leigh and Kyle Edwards are already members of the squad, are also believed to be keen on signing Town striker Ali Al-Hamadi on loan.

It's about time El Mizouni found himself a permanent home Orient have been getting him on the cheap for to long with no intentions of buying him. Hope he does well in the championship but i think he might find it tough going. Anyone know what's happening to Baggott is he going back on loan to Bristol Rovers.
