Speaking to the club website upon the announcement, Oxford boss Robinson gave fans a taste of what to expect from Agyei, saying:

“Everyone will see straight away that he has plenty of pace but there is more to his game than that and he has a terrific attitude, which is important. We’ve seen a lot of him at under 23 level and we know he scores goals as well as stretching the game.

“The fans have been patient and the last week or two have seen plenty of new signings: there are still a couple more to come but Dan gives us something different and will be an exciting player for the fans to watch. It will take a week or two before he is involved because he’s not really had a pre-season, but he is fit, he came through the medicals with glowing reports and we are happy to have the chance to work with him”.

He leaves Burnley having made just three appearances for the first-team, finding most of his football during time on loan away from the club. Agyei has spent time in League One on loan with the likes of Walsall (21 games, five goals) Coventry City (19 games, five goals and two assists) and Blackpool (nine games, one assist).
