Cox Wants O'Neill Back On Loan

Cox Wants O'Neill Back On Loan

Could Luke O'Neill be about to return to Mansfield? The Stags gaffer, Paul Cox has confirmed he would like to see the return of the right back to the One Call Stadium on loan although he has also stated that nothing had significantly progressed regarding a potential move so far.

"I have go to be respectful of Burnley and see what his situation is there," said Cox.

"Luke was here at the Liverpool game and all the lads keep in touch with him.

"He wants to play football and wants to go out on loan. But I have not been in touch with Burnley yet. I am just keeping an eye on it."

O'Neill joined the Clarets in June 2012 for an undisclosed fee but has found opportunities limited with Kieran Trippier obviously first choice right-back at the moment. His only start was in the Capital One Second Round cup game against Plymouth back in August and other than that he has had to be content with a number of unused substitute appearances on the bench.

Don't know about this one! We could agree a loan to give O'Neill more competitive games but surely there would need to be an emergency recall clause in the loan contract in case we lose the services of Trippier.

I would like O'Neill to go out on loan, but I would like to see him in league football. League one or two. I dont see any real benefit to him going back to the level he has just come from - he needs to be progressing up.
