OXFORD UNITED boss Karl Robinson is trying to hijack Crystal Palace’s midfield starlet Jesurun Rak Sakyi despite MK Dons being close to a deal.
The winger was in terrific form for Palace's reserves last season.
He scored 18 goals and set up five in 25 league games – prompting the interest from Dons and Oxford.
Rak Sakyi made two first team appearances in the Premier League for Palace last season.
His first came off the bench during their 3-0 loss to Chelsea on the opening day.
And he started the shock 1-0 win over Manchester United on the final day.

He scored contributed to 15 goals in 41 games in League One as Accrington finished in 12th place in the division.
Elsewhere, MORECAMBE are offering top 26-goal scorer Cole Stockton a new deal — but only on £2,000-a-week.
Stockton, 28, has been their main man for the past two seasons, as he helped fire the club to promotion into League One during the 2020/21 season.
Championship new boys Rotherham are interested in him but reluctant to make a big bid despite his strong form last season which helped Morecambe narrowly avoid relegation.
