In November 1997, Sheffield United bought him for £400,000.[1] In 2002 he returned to Oxford on a free transfer, scoring once in his second spell at the club against Boston United,[2] before retiring from professional football in July 2003. After a break from football, in January 2004 he signed for Bath City, where he spent almost two years, before retiring permanently.[3]
