Forest Green Rovers have agreed on terms to sign Oxford United winger Rob Hall on loan for the rest of the season as reported by Football Insider.
The twenty-six-year-old has made twenty-four appearances so far this season, scoring six goals but only three of those outings have been League One starts.
Having found himself on the fringes of manager Karl Robinson’s plans, the forward is keen to move away from the Kassam Stadium to get regular football, and according to the report, Robinson has sanctioned the move.
The report claims the potential availability of Hall alerted several clubs in League One and Two, but Forest Green have moved the quickest to land the former West ham trainee.
While at Upton Park, Hall enjoyed loan spells at Oxford, MK Dons, Birmingham and Bolton before joining Bolton permanently in 2013. A serious injury hampered his progress with the Trotters and after two loan spells with MK Dons he arrived back at Oxford in 2016.
Recurring knee problems have previously limited Hall’s game time, especially last season when he made only four appearances. Nonetheless, he did enough to earn a new one-year deal with the option of a further twelve months in the summer.
Forest Green are on the slide after a good start to the campaign and Hall would add undoubted quality to their squad.
Although injury may have robbed him of a yard of pace, he is still a good player for League Two level.
He’s an excellent signing if he can stay fit, and that is the crucial factor in making this move a success.
