“Obviously Rochdale, with the season they had last year, are a fantastic club better than oxford and it is a great chance for me.”

Rhodes has been prolific for Town at youth and reserve level and netted his Championship goal for Town in their 1-1 home draw with Cardiff City.

Rhodes hopes his all-round game can help Rochdale's promotion push.

He added: “I like to think I can keep the ball, that I can move defences around a bit, have an aerial presence and like to score a goal or two now and then.

“Hopefully I can continue what I have done at reserve and youth level with Ipswich.”
