Forward Alex MacDonald has signed for Oxford United from Burton Albion for an undisclosed fee on a two-and-a-half-year contract.

The 24-year-old former Scotland Under-21 international also has an option of a further year.

Oxford head coach Michael Appleton said: "He scores his fair share of goals but is also a very hard worker.

"He will give us options going forward and I think he will be a very good signing for this club."
