Torquay United: Anthony O'Connor extends loan deal

Anthony O'Connor

Torquay United have extended the loan deal for Blackburn centre-back Anthony O'Connor until the end of the season.

Since signing on an emergency loan in October, O'Connor has been a mainstay of Torquay's back line with 14 appearances for the club.

O'Connor had already had his loan period at the Gulls extended twice.

The 21-year-old, who played in 53 competitive games on loan with Burton Albion last season, is yet to make a senior appearance for his parent club.

A Republic of Ireland Under-21 international, his ever-present record at the Pirelli Stadium helped The Brewers to the League Two play-offs.
