CHERRIES youngster Josh O'Hanlon has joined Conference North outfit Oxford City on loan until the end of the season.

The striker switched to Dean Court from League of Ireland side Longford Town in January but is yet to make a first-team appearance under boss Eddie Howe.

Cherries paid around £50,000 for the services of the 18-year-old, who could go straight into the Oxford squad that travels to Leamington tonight.
