Former York City defender Djoumin Sangare has been snapped up by League Two Oxford United until the end of the season.

The 27-year-old only left Bootham Crescent last month with the intention of signing for Moroccan club Casablanca. But the deal fell through and he returned to this country.
Sangare had been due to have a trial at Lincoln City this week and appear in a reserve game against Hull City.
However, the French-born centre-back has instead decided to join Oxford, who defeated York in the Blue Square Premier play-off final at Wembley last season.
“It’s a good opportunity for me, Oxford are a big club. They shouldn’t be in League Two, they should be much higher,” Sangare told BBC Oxford. “I want to try and help them and impress them during this short spell and hopefully get a longer contract.
“Oxford broke my heart last year,” he added. “I did have the opportunity to go abroad earlier in the season [with Casablanca], but the deal fell through so I’ve come back to England and Chris Wilder called me up and offered me this contract.
“This is an opportunity to play somewhere with ambition and somewhere where I can enjoy my football.”
