Oxford United have signed Ben Davis from Fulham.

The 20-year-old midfielder made one senior appearance for the Sky Bet Championship club and was a regular for their Under 23 side in the last two seasons.

He is now keen to continue his progression at United after signing a two-year deal.

Davis said: “I’m looking forward to playing men’s football.

“It was a huge step up from academy to 23s, so I’m looking forward to taking the next step.

“I have some friends who have moved to League One on loan.

“They say it’s really competitive, similar to the Championship.

“I just aim to work hard and see what I can do for the team.

“Hopefully I can break into the squad, play in front of the fans and bring something to the team.”

Davis is the second midfielder to join United in 24 hours, after Herbie Kane arrived on loan from Barnsley yesterday.

The youngster is already well-travelled - he was born in Thailand, moved to Singapore as a child and joined Fulham on a scholarship as a teenager.

He has represented Singapore at Under 16 and Under 19 level and Thailand Under 23s.

U's head coach Karl Robinson told the club's official website: “He’s got energy and talent and has been through the system at a terrific club who have a history of helping young players develop.

"As with Mackenzie Chapman who we signed on Friday, Ben has a good attitude, lots of ability and we look forward to working with him and seeing him develop further.”

Fulham FC statement
The Club can now confirm that Academy midfielder Ben Davis has joined Oxford United on a permanent deal.

The 20-year-old, who has represented Thailand at Under-23s level, signed a scholarship deal for Fulham back in 2017 after a successful period on trial.

Since that point, he has played in 10 Under-18s games before making a further 20 appearances for our U23's.

His performances earned him a senior debut, coming on as a substitute against Southampton in the EFL Cup.

Everyone at Fulham thanks Ben for all his efforts and wishes him the very best for the future.
