Burnley defender to join Brisbane Road ranks

Leyton Orient have agreed the loan signing of Burnley defender Luke O’Neill for the rest of the season.

The 23-year-old, predominantly a right-back, joins the League One strugglers until the end of the season from the Premier League side, lining up with fellow Clarets team-mate Alex Cisak at Brisbane Road.

O’Neill has had a spell on loan with League One side Scunthorpe United, featuring on 15 occasions for the Glanford Park outfit, including in Orient’s 2-1 win on September 20.

The defender has made two appearances for Burnley and had loan spells with York City and Southend United last season.
