York City manager Gary Mills was disappointed not to have the chance to persuade popular French-born defender Djoumin Sangare back to Bootham Crescent.

The 27-year-old departed the Minstermen to join Moroccan side Casablanca just before Christmas, but that move has since fallen through.
As a result he returned to England and was promptly offered a trial at Lincoln City this week. However, Sangare was in turn contacted by Oxford United manager Chris Wilder and has now agreed a deal at the Kassam Stadium until the end of the season.
“I didn`t know his move had fallen through,” Mills admitted to The Press. “I kept hearing he was back and a couple of League clubs rang me asking about him so there`s a tinge of disappointment for me that he did not get back in touch to let me know the deal had fallen through.
“But he`s got himself to Oxford and has a chance to prove himself in the League.”
