Forest Green Rovers have signed defender Udoka Godwin-Malife from National League South club Oxford City.

The 18-year-old joins on a two-and-a-half-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

"He's a player who's been on our radar for a while," Forest Green manager Mark Cooper told BBC Radio Gloucestershire.

"We've watched a lot of Oxford City games and I've watched him myself twice. There was some real interest coming in from other clubs and we didn't want to lose out on him."
