Defender Aaron O’Driscoll has joined Irish side Longford Town on loan until the end of the season.
The 21-year-old has been limited to a handful of senior appearances this season, and will spend the remainder of the campaign on loan with the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division side.
“We nearly got Aaron out to the Conference [in January] but it didn’t quite work out,” said manager Nigel Clough.
“Longford Town expressed an interest and we wanted to help him out as best we could, so that he could go out and play some games.
“The good thing is they play until the end of June, so he’ll also get games in May and June as well.
“He’s played very little football in the first half of the season, so he’s desperate to go out and play, and we want him to go out and play as well.”
