Partick Thistle can today announce the signing of defender, Lee O’Connor, on a loan until the end of the season from Celtic, subject to SFA approval.
The 19-year-old Irishman arrives to bolster Ian McCall’s defensive options with experience playing right across the back four.
The natural right-back started his career with Villa FC in his native Waterford before being picked up by Manchester United where he would play at under-18 and under-23 level.
However, in September of last year, Celtic made the move to sign the youngster to a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.
Lee’s talents haven’t gone unnoticed by his country with 38 caps at various youth levels before he made his senior debut in a 3-1 friendly win over New Zealand in November, during which he assisted the third goal.
An extended interview with Thistle’s latest loan recruit is now available exclusively to Jagzone subscribers, click here to watch.
