OLD­HAM owner Si­mon Cor­ney be­lieves it will be tough to keep tal­ented Mid­dles­brough loa­nee Con­nor Ripley at the club next sea­son.

The 24-year-old goal­keeper has been im­mense as the Lat­ics se­cured league safety and can equal the club’s all-time clean sheets record for a sea­son (19) by shut­ting out AFC Wim­ble­don this af­ter­noon.

Cor­ney said: “One player who prob­a­bly will not be here next year is Con­nor.

“Cer­tainly in my time here we have never had a bet­ter goal­keeper and he would be a mas­sive loss for us next sea­son.”
