Former Rotherham United striker Jordan Bowery has been released by Oxford United.

The now twenty-four year old joined the Millers in the summer of 2014 for an undisclosed fee from Aston Villa though it was rumoured to have broken the the Millers’transfer record of £160,000 which was for Lee Frecklington in January 2013.

Jordan went on to play over sixty times for Rotherham although mostly from the subs bench but scored just six goals the last one being in the Capital One Cup game against Cambridge in August last year.

In November 2015 Jordan had a loan spell with Bradford City and January saw him and the club part company by mutual consent and just a couple of weeks later he joined Oxford until the end of the season.

Playing seventeen times for Oxford Jordan scored seven goals helping then clinch promotion to League One.

But we are asking what now for Jordan Bowery?

Starting his career with Chesterfield the striker caught the eye of Premier League side Aston Villa but failed to open his Villa account in six starts and 16 substitute appearances for the club.

He probably saw coming to the Millers as a new start and although he might not have got the game time he was expecting he never really lived up to the promise we thought he probably should have done and definitely didn’t score the goals that was expected of him.

With Oxford going into League One they obviously don’t think he can make it for them there. But he is still a young man and still has time to prove himself in football.

I just wonder where that will be?

The U’s have also released former Millers favourite Johnny Mullins.
