Hylton has fallen out of favour at Kenilworth Road in recent weeks, not making the last three squads under caretaker Mick Harford. Whilst James Collins and Elliot Lee have stepped up a level with ease, Hylton has just five goals to his name.
He left Oxford United in 2016, turning down a new deal to join Luton. He began his career with Aldershot, moving to Rotherham United where he made little impact.
He’s a controversial figure, an aggressive striker who thrives on winding up defenders and fans as much as half chances and efforts at goal.
What a signing he’d be for Oxford. If he is available, there’s no doubt a few clubs will be wanting to speak to him about a move. He’s prolific in League Two, but has never proven himself in League One.
If I were a table-topping League Two club, I’d be checking down the back of the sofa for a few quid because signing this man would guarantee ten goals between now and May, if not more.
