  • Eoghan O'Connell joins Latics on loan

    Eoghan O'Connell joins Latics on loan

    By: Mark Henderson on 01 Sep, 2015 15:18

  • YOUNG Defender Eoghan O’Connell has agreed to join League One side Oldham Athletic on a six-month loan deal.

    The 20-year-old has made six first-team appearances for Celtic, last lining up for the Hoops in the 3-1 victory away to Dundee United last month, playing the full 90 minutes.

    The Cork-born player joined the Celtic Youth Academy, aged 16, and he rapidly rose through the ranks to become a regular for the Development Side. He made his top-team bow in March 2013 at home to Ross County.

    His growing standing in the squad was highlighted when he captained a youthful team in the friendly against Sparta Prague during the winter break in Gran Canaria.

    In February he penned a new contract, committing his future at the club until the summer of 2017.

    His progress over the course of the previous campaign was recognised when he was awarded Celtic’s Academy Player of the Year in May.

    The Irish youngster, who has represented his country at youth level, will now be targeting further competitive experience during his stint at the Latics to aid his development.

    Everyone at Celtic wishes Eoghan every success during the next six months at Oldham.
