Sept 2001: Viveash celebrates scoring the penalty that sent West Ham crashing out of the Worthington Cup
Thirty-three year old Viveash looks set to quit the Madejski Stadium for the Kassam Stadium, Oxford and the lure of regular first team football, albeit in the Third Division.

After falling out of favour at the Madejski Stadium the former Swindon Town player completed a months loan with the U's, featuring in the side eight times.

Although he is uncomfortable at the idea of making the move from Division One down to Division Three, Adi admits the chance to be a first team regular once more could prove a too greater pull.

"In a way I am disappointed to move to the Third Division but if I have to do it again I will. At the minute I've got an open mind about what will happen," said Viveash, speaking to

"There are some discussions going on today between my representative and the Oxford chairman. They'll make me an offer, I'll see what it is, talk to Reading and then take it from there.

"I enjoyed my month on loan at Oxford immensely, it was a massive culture shock leaving Reading but it's the same wherever you go.

"The month went very well results wise, we had some good performances in the cup - Charlton the most notable - to beat a Premiership team and play in the game was fantastic.

"I'd like to think I can play in a team in a higher division than the third, it was not so long ago that I was in a team that won promotion, and you've got to believe in your own ability.

"I still feel I have a lot to offer to Oxford or to another club. The U's are currently in pole position for my signature because they want me."
