SOUTHEND United have completed the loan signing of Burnley right-back Luke O’Neill.

As was revealed in Friday’s Echosport, O’Neill will spend the next 30 days at Roots Hall as a replacement for the injured John White.

And Blues boss Phil Brown is thrilled to have brought the 22-year-old to the club.

“I’m delighted to have Luke here for a month because we’re in need of cover at right-back with our captain out injured,” said Brown.

“Ryan Leonard filled in at Plymouth and did a good job, but we missed him in the midfield.

“Luke is very highly rated and I was impressed by him when we played York earlier in the season, I’m sure he’ll settle in quickly here.”

O’Neill will go straight in to the squad for Saturday’s game against Chesterfield at Roots Hall.
