Morton loan for O'Connell


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth frontman Keelan O’Connell has signed a loan deal with Scottish Championship outfit Greenock Morton.

The 19-year-old winger, who has been on the Cherries’ books since he was 11, will remain at Cappielow for the rest of the season.

Ferndown-raised O’Connell is a member of the under-21 squad at Vitality Stadium and has netted four times during a fruitful campaign for Shaun Cooper’s team.

His goals have helped them reach the final of the Central League Cup, the quarter-final of the Hampshire Senior Cup and to the top of their group in the Premier League Cup.

Comfortable on either flank, O’Connell was rewarded with his first professional contract during 2015/16 and signed an extension at the end of last season.

Morton are currently sixth in the Scottish Championship, just a point shy of Queen of the South who occupy the final play-off place.

O’Connell could make his debut against Cherries teammate Charlie Seaman with Morton visiting Dundee United on Saturday.

Seaman followed Jermain Defoe (Rangers) and Mikael Ndjoli (Kilmarnock) to Scotland when he joined the Tangerines on loan last week.
