Republic of Ireland international Darren O'Dea is keen to join Burnley on loan, says his agent Kevin Moran.

"Gordon (Strachan) has declared his willingness to let Darren move out on loan so that he can play more," Moran told the Burnley Express.

"It looks like Burnley, and the only question is really over the timing of when he will head south.

"He's looking forward to going there.

"Gordon Strachan says that it's important for Darren to get games in and he's more than happy to go to Burnley.

"It's very important to Darren to get games. If he can get those games at Burnley, which is a good footballing club, then all the better.

"If Darren goes down there, he'll play."
