Mark Oxley has joined League One side Oldham Athletic on a season-long loan deal.
The 23-year-old goalkeeper, who joined the Tigers in the summer of 2008, completed the paperwork for the move earlier today.
Oxley made his senior debut for the Tigers as a substitute in last season’s home game against Sheffield Wednesday and recently signed a new two-year contract at the KC Stadium.
The highly-regarded stopper also had a loan spell with Burton Albion in 2012/13 and is now looking forward to gaining further first team experience during his time at Boundary Park.
“I’m looking forward to going to Oldham,” Oxley told www.hullcityafc.net
“I enjoyed my time at Burton last season even though I got injured, and this time I’m going into League One which is a step up.
“Hopefully this is another step in the right direction for me. I’m at the age where I want to be out playing first team football rather than playing in the reserve leagues. It’s all about getting that game time under my belt and that is something I’m looking forward to.
“My main aim now is to play well for Oldham this season and then come back and look to push for a first team place here.
“I wouldn’t have signed a new two-year deal with City if I didn’t see myself aiming for a place in the first team.”
