Fleetwood Town are delighted to confirm the signing of Kevin O’Connor on loan from Preston North End until the end of the season.
The 22-year-old left-back becomes the Cod Army’s fourth signing of the January window, and will be available for Saturday’s game at Gillingham.
The Irishman played more than 100 games in his home country for Waterford United and Cork City, before joining North End in June this year.
He made his league debut for Alex Neil’s side against Aston Villa in November, and has also been capped four times for Republic of Ireland’s U21s side.
Head coach Uwe Rosler said on the deal: “Kevin is very talented, he has a great left foot and brings everything we want into the team. We’ve been monitoring him for a while now and are delighted to have him at Fleetwood Town.”
Kevin will wear the number three shirt whilst at Highbury.
