League One side Blackpool have managed to acquire the services of young Paudie O’Connor from Leeds United on a season-long loan deal. The 20-year-old centre-back made his first-team debut for the Peacocks against Sunderland in April this year and he most-recently penned a new contract before joining the Seasiders.

Speaking to the club’s official website, he said:“I’ve had a nice week of getting a new deal at Leeds and then getting the opportunity to come to a great club like Blackpool. I’m really excited to get in, meet the lads and get training. I’m looking forward to getting a full season of first-team football under my belt, hopefully.”
