Kenny to stay with Oxford until May

, 30 March, 5comments  |  Jump to most recent
Jonjoe Kenny has had his loan spell at League Two Oxford United extended until the end of the season.

The 19-year-old has made 13 appearances for the Us since joining them in January and his extension puts him in the frame for this weekend's Johnstone's Paint Trophy final against Barnsley at Wembley.

He could come up against his Academy team-mate Callum Connolly in that game if both are selected by their respective loan clubs.

Great news for Jonjoe, obviously benefitting from proper first team football, and he's hopefully going to be playing at Wembley this weekend. Good luck kid!

Stories like this have me asking if we have some generally very good talent improving the sides they are loaned to or if we place them well. Wembley, Wembley here we come.......

Might be a bit of both, Alan. One thing is for sure: Jonjoe is better off at Oxford at the moment, he can play in a Cup Final at Wembley and he could end up getting a Championship medal if Oxford win their league.

No doubt he is happy to be at Oxford for the rest of the season and, by all accounts, Oxford and their fans are happy to have him there.

Whichever way, Dave, somebody has to be bringing home a winners medal.

Preferably, 0-0 and only 2 blokes score their penalties.

It's great that Oxford think so highly of Kenny and that they want him for their promotion battle and Wembley final.

After appearing as a substitute in his first appearance, Kenny has started the last 12 games for Oxford. It seems Everton found a good fit for Kenny and he has shown United some quality.

This looks like a good season regarding the development of the 18-year-old defender.
