DONE DEAL: Burnley defender Younger joins St. Patrick's

Burnley youngster Ollie Younger has joined Irish side St. Patrick's Athletic on loan until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old defender has been with the Clarets since 2008 and has yet to make a first-team appearance.

"I've been really impressed," Younger said. "Training has been really good. The intensity has been spot-on, the quality as well, I've just been really impressed with it all and I can't wait to get going.

"There's a lot of players who I've played against over in England who have come from this league and I can tell it's a really good league.

"Playing senior football is something I need to do for my career. To get an opportunity like this, it was a no-brainer really."
