John O’Sullivan has today extended his loan spell at Accrington Stanley until mid December.

The midfielder joined us on loan from Blackburn Rovers in mid September and he was John Coleman’s first signing as he returned to the club, and his initial spell was set to last a month but with his move here working out Coleman has moved quickly to secure the extension.

The Republic of Ireland U21 scored a brace on his debut against Northampton and has gone on to feature in every game since his arrival and he will now be with us for the maximum spell of 93 days.

Speaking to the Official Site with the paperwork now all done, O’Sullivan explained.

‘I’m really pleased. I spoke to Gary Bowyer just the other day and told him that it’s important to get league experience as a young player at a club like Accrington. I feel I’m learning with every game. I know I burst onto the scene at Northampton and then everyone expects you to do the same in every game but it does take time to settle in.’

O’Sullivan goes on to say that given how he is enjoying his time with us he had let people know he wanted to stay past the month so he’s delighted that both clubs have come to an agreement to make that happen, and confidently he adds that he doesn’t believe we’ve seen the best of him yet.
