Leeds have confirmed that Paudie O’Connor has left the club on loan with him heading to Blackpool in League One.
Not so long ago, the defender signed a new deal with the Whites but from there it became clear that his immediate future actually lay away from the club.
Indeed, League One was touted as the destination and that has come to pass with him joining the Tangerines for the start of the new season.
A player of decent quality, it’ll be interesting to see how he adapts to his new surroundings.
I’d liked to have seen him stay put this season but all I can imagine is that we’re going to get replacements in during this window.
Certainly, we’re now very short at centre-half and you’d surely envisage that we’re going to get in some replacements.
Kyle Bartley is obviously the one we want, but that has gone quiet for now.
