DONE DEAL: Gillingham return for Southampton defender Tom O'Connor

Southampton defender Tom O'Connor has rejoined League One side Gillingham on loan for the remainder of the 2020/21 season.

The 21-year-old, a Republic of Ireland youth international, spent most of the 2019/20 campaign representing the Kent-based side in a prior loan spell, making 32 appearances and scoring once before the season was curtailed due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

O'Connor will now link up with the Gills once again this term, ahead of this weekend's trip to Shrewsbury Town.

Steve Evans's side are currently lying 7th in the table after three games played (W2, L1).
