Irish Youngster Paudie O'Connor Cuts Short Blackpool Loan Deal In Favour Of Bradford

Irish youngster and Leeds United defender Paudie O'Connor is set for a loan move to Leauge One side Bradford City after cutting his season-long loan with Blackpool short.

The Yorkshire Evening Post report that O'Connor will have a medical with Bradford today ahead of a proposed loan move until the end of the season. The club are managed by former Leeds player David Hopkin.

O'Connor is a former League of Ireland player, having broken through to the Limerick senior team before he'd even completed his Leaving Cert and helped steer the club to promotion to the League of Ireland Premier League. He then completed a move to Leeds in 2017.

The Limerick man played for Blackpool in Saturday’s FA Cup clash with Arsenal but has opted to join Bradford in the hope of more first-team football.
