Tsun Dai makes deadline day transfer to Oxford United


Hong Kong’s Tsun Dai had a difficult breakthrough season 

Tsun Dai had a difficult breakthrough season for Bury as he played under three different managers as the club failed to fight of relegation to League Two. 

He made 11 appearances for the club scoring once, and creating one assist in the first professional season of his career. This prompted the club to offer him a new three year contract at Bury.

Relegation, and a manager merry-go-round limited chances 

Tsun Dai saw his chances limted at Bury as a managerial merry-go-round was going on in their attempt to fight off relegation. His chances had been limited under Chris Lucketti and then he had a similar experience under caretaker Ryan Lowe.

Ryan Lowe has now been appointed full time Bury manager and has brought in 12 of his own players, which would likely have limited Tsuan Dai’s chances of playing time even more. 

Transfer to Oxford 

Oxford manager Karl Robinson has described Tsun Dai as an exciting signing, and the League One outfit will be hoping he can provide some inspiration this weekend. Oxford lost their first match of the season 4-0 and find themselves at the bottom of the table after 1 game. 

This weekend Oxford will play Joey Barton’s Fleetwood Town, and Robinson says Dai is an exciting prospect with an excellent attitude, but still has areas of his game that can be developed further and they believe they are the right club to do that. 

Dai – The atmosphere is totally different 

Tsun Dai has said the atmosphere at Oxford is totally different to Bury, we can only assume it’s more positive considering Bury were in a dogfight to try and survive in League One. 

Tsun Dai still hasn’t represented Hong Kong at senior international level, and is also eligible to represent England.
