Striker to head out for second loan move.
Dan has recently returned from a spell with Wrexham, but boss Tony Humes is eager that this second loan stint will provide the forward with the game time that he needs.
"He'll now go to Aldershot and will see where it goes from there.
"He went to Wrexham, but only played 35 minutes so he's still not where we need him to be where match fitness is concerned.
"We're hoping that Dan will be able to get some minutes on the pitch this time," the U's boss told the official website.
"Aldershot have asked permission for him to play in the FA Cup this weekend, which we've agreed to, and hopefully that will be the start of some first team action for him."
