Midfielder John O'Sullivan has re-signed for Accrington Stanley on a six-month loan deal from Championship club Blackburn Rovers.

O'Sullivan, 21, scored four goals, including two on his debut, in a 13-game loan spell with Stanley two seasons ago.

He has also spent time at Southport and Barnsley and was on loan to Rochdale and Bury last season.

O'Sullivan will stay with Accrington until 7 January 2017.

His return to the Wham Stadium comes three days after the arrival of midfielder Chris Eagles and defender Janoi Donacien.

The former Republic of Ireland international O'Sullivan is in line to play in Tuesday's EFL Cup first-round tie at home to Bradford.
