Hall rejoins U's on loan

West Ham United have allowed England Under-19 forward Rob Hall to rejoin League Two promotion chasers Oxford United on loan until  Saturday 17 December 2011.

Hall was in outstanding goalscoring form for Oxford, netting six goals in ten appearances for the U's earlier this season before being recalled and being named as an unused substitute for the Hammers' npower Championship meeting with Bristol City on 1 November.

The youngster, who celebrated his 18th birthday on 20 October, has helped Oxford climb into League Two Play-Off places and will hope to make his second 'debut' for the club in Saturday's visit to second-placed Crawley Town.

Since Hall's return to the Boleyn Ground, Oxford have lost all three matches they have contested, being knocked out of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy and the FA Cup.

He could potentially make another three league appearances during this loan spell, with the U's hosting Cheltenham, travelling to Morecambe and welcoming Northampton Town to the Kassam Stadium over the coming month.

Aside from his fine club form, the teenager has also shone for his country, netting the winner as England defeated Denmark 1-0 at Brighton & Hove Albion's American Express Community Stadium on 10 November.

Hall is one of seven players out on loan at present, with Herita Ilunga (Doncaster Rovers), Ahmed Abdulla (Swindon Town), Frank Nouble (Gillingham) and Callum McNaughton (AFC Wimbledon) away on a short-term basis and Pablo Barrera (Real Zaragoza) and Jordan Spence (Bristol City) away for the remainder of the 2011/12 season.

Marek Stech, Olly Lee, Cristian Montano, Jordan Brown and Dominic Vose have also been out on loan to Football League and Blue Square Premier clubs this term.
