Bristol City striker Matty Taylor is closing in on a move to Oxford United.
The 29-year-old is set for a switch to the League One side, according to a report by Bristol Live.
Taylor, who is from Oxford, rose up through the youth ranks with the U’s as a youngster and is expected to return there now.
He has fallen out-of-favour at Ashton Gate and has been linked with a move away from them throughout the transfer window.
Taylor played 11 times for Oxford in his early career but was released in 2009. He subsequently had spells in non-league with the likes of Didcot Town and North Leigh before he was snapped up by Forest Green Rovers in 2011.
He became a key player for the Rovers and scored 24 goals in 106 appearances for them which earned him a move to Bristol Rovers in 2014.
Taylor was an integral part of the Pirates’ side who won back-to-back promotions from the Conference to League One and bagged a total of 68 goals in three seasons.
He then made the shock switch across Bristol to join the Robins in January 2017 for around £300,000 and has since played 74 times for Lee Johnson’s side.
A move to Oxford now would be a good opportunity for Taylor to play more regular football and he would be a shrewd signing for Karl Robinson’s side based on his previous goal scoring record.
