Loan star Robert Hall wants extended Oxford United stay

Hall has only experienced one defeat in nine games at Oxford

Oxford United's on-loan striker Robert Hall says he wants to extend his stay at the club following his huge impact since arriving from West Ham United.

Hall scored two goals for the U's in the 5-1 win over Plymouth on Tuesday, to bring his tally up to six goals in nine games for the League Two side.

The 18-year-old is on loan at Oxford until 9 November and has been instrumental in their success so far.

"If I could extend it, I would extend it again," Hall told BBC Radio Oxford.

"It's just up to West Ham and whether or not they'll let me stay. Hopefully, they'll let me stay, it's something I want to do."

Hall's goals have helped fire United up to fifth in the table and manager Chris Wilder says he is keen to extend his loan stay for a second time.

"From my point of view, I'd love to have him here for longer," said Wilder.

"He's flourishing, playing regular matches and is enjoying it. We're enjoying him being here, as are the supporters, so we'll have to wait and see."

United forward James Constable, who also scored twice against Plymouth, is predicting big things from the West Ham trainee.

"He is a tremendous player and a joy to train with and play with," Constable told BBC Radio Oxford.

"He has got a massive future ahead of him and for the moment we are just pleased to have him playing for us," added Constable.

United put behind them their weekend defeat by nine-man Gillingham with victory over bottom-placed Argyle and Constable says team spirit has a part to pay in their success this season.

"We are all together," added Constable.

"The morale is brilliant on the training pitch and in the changing room and we all go out on Saturdays desperate for the same thing and are driving towards that one goal."
