OX­FORD boss Michael Ap­ple­ton is ex­pect­ing teenager Gior­gio Ra­sulo to make a long-last­ing im­pact at the Kas­sam Sta­dium af­ter sign­ing on loan un­til the end of the sea­son.

Ra­sulo, who is on the books at MK Dons, made his first-team de­but in the FA Cup as a 15-year-old in 2012 – and Ap­ple­ton ad­mits the young­ster hasn’t taken long to im­press him.

“He’s a tal­ented lad and can play in a few po­si­tions in mid­field or as the num­ber ten,” said Ap­ple­ton.

“He cre­ates things, he has been very im­pres­sive in train­ing this week and, be­ing a lo­cal lad, he knows what the club is all about and what we are try­ing to build.”
