"I'm delighted to be back at Oxford United," Rose told BBC Radio Oxford.

"If I remember rightly it's been six years since I left, a lot of things have changed since then and I'm very much looking forward to pre-season and the next couple of years."

Manager Chris Wilder was also pleased to welcome both players to the club

"Both of them are very good players who we have been watching for a while now," he said.
