Crewe Alexandra have completed the signing of left-back Kevin O'Connor on loan from Preston North End until January 7 2019.
The former Republic of Ireland U21 international has linked up with his new team mates today & is available to face Macclesfield Town at Gresty Road on Saturday.
23-year-old O'Connor joined Preston in summer 2017 for an undisclosed fee from Cork City after impressing in the League of Ireland.
The left-footer started out at Waterford United in 2013 & impressed during two years to move Cork where he again kicked on, playing 69 games in two seasons.
That form prompted Championship side Preston to make their move in June 2017, agreeing a three-year-contract.
He made his Championship debut in November last season against Aston Villa & went on to play on nine occasions during the first half of 2017/18.
Making a loan move to League One Fleetwood in January under Uwe Rosler, O'Connor made five appearances for the Cod Army before an injury picked up in February effectively ended his season.
Everyone at Crewe Alexandra would like to welcome Kevin to the Club.
