DONE DEAL: Morton land Bournemouth striker Keelan O'Connell

Bournemouth striker Keelan O'Connell has signed a loan deal with Scottish Championship outfit Greenock Morton.

The 19-year-old winger, who has been on the Cherries' books since he was 11, will remain at Cappielow for the rest of the season.

Ferndown-raised O'Connell is a member of the under-21 squad at Vitality Stadium and has netted four times during a fruitful campaign for Shaun Cooper's team.

His goals have helped them reach the final of the Central League Cup, the quarter-final of the Hampshire Senior Cup and to the top of their group in the Premier League Cup.

Comfortable on either flank, O'Connell was rewarded with his first professional contract during 2015/16 and signed an extension at the end of last season.
