L1: Rochdale loan O’Sullivan from Blackburn

Rochdale have strengthened their squad with the signing of Blackburn’s attacking midfielder John O’Sullivan.

Barnsley were interested in the permanent signing of O’Sullivan in the summer transfer window but the move fell through, whilst he was also linked with a move to Rochdale’s Lancashire rivals Oldham last month.

The Republic of Ireland U21 international, 22, has played just three times for Blackburn.
