Chapman's Oxford United future in doubt after loan
9:00am Thursday 7th March 2013 in Sport
ADAM Chapman could have played his final game for Oxford United after joining Mansfield Town on loan yesterday.
The deal is until the end of the season, but with a view to making the move permanent this summer.
If the Stags can agree a transfer, it would mean Chapman’s four-year stay with the U’s ended on a low note.
The 23-year-old started the 2-1 win against Port Vale, but was substituted for tactical reasons just before half-time and was left out of United’s 18-man squad for Tuesday’s 4-0 defeat at home to Rotherham.
The midfielder signed a new two-year contract following prolonged negotiations last summer and made 34 appearances this season.
But despite regular football in recent months, the ex-Sheffield United trainee has arguably struggled to fulfil his potential.
He went straight into the Stags’ team for last night’s Blue Square Bet Premier trip to Woking.
