The 6ft 3′ powerhouse has been through all the ranks with Derby County over his 10 year period at the club, during his time at the club, he made just 25 first team appearances, with more substitute appearances to his name than starts for The Rams. Hanson also had a loan spell at Wigan Athletic during his time at Derby.
Since the arrival of Frank Lampard as manager at Derby, it had meant that Hanson had made his way down the pecking order through a number of new signings. This will be a good opportunity for the 22-year-old to get his career back on track and to get some frequent first-team football once again. The Former England under 20 international was highly regarded amongst the fans at Pride Park and fans will be sad to see him go.
Due to a slight injury, Hanson will be unable to make an appearance in Oxford’s next fixture on Saturday against Fleetwood Town, Oxford United have said that he will be able to train next week so it won’t be too long until he makes his debut.
Hanson joins Oxford United alongside Tsan Dai and Ricky Holmes on deadline day. With Oxford starting the season with a 4-0 defeat, hopefully, these signings should give a lift to the squad so they can look to push for promotion this season.
