LUKE-ING TO PLANT HIS ROOTS

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

SOUTHEND United’s new full-back Luke O’Neill is keen to make his move from Burn­ley per­ma­nent.

O’Neill is ini­tially at Roots Hall for a month, but he said: “We have spo­ken about mak­ing the move per­ma­nent and I’m re­ally in­ter­ested in do­ing that.

“Hope­fully we can get some­thing sorted be­cause I’m 24 now and I want to be play­ing at a good level.

“League One is def­i­nitely a good level. I played in it last sea­son and I know I can add some­thing to this team.

“The man­ager is good and it’s closer to home for me too. My fam­ily live in Northamp­ton, so it’s not too far and I want to be among things again.”
