Mitchell goes back to Sheffield on loan
Northern Ireland under-21 goalkeeper Conor Mitchell has gone out on loan for the third time this season, rejoining Sheffield on a one month youth loan.
He spent time with them earlier in the season and more recently was on loan at Bradford Park Avenue for a month where he made a big impression.
On leaving Bradford, where he had stood in for regular goalkeeper and former Claret Jon Stewart, tweeted their thanks and best wishes to him and said we had a prospect on our hands.
He’s now gone back to Sheffield where that earlier spell was curtailed by international calls. He teams up once more with former Burnley loan player Andy Kiwomya again; Kiwomya is manager at Sheffield.
It’s a one month youth loan and he’s gone straight into their squad for tonight’s game against Belper Town.
Since his last loan at Bradford, the highly rated Mitchell has committed his future to the Clarets with the signing of a long term contract, one of three players to sign such deals alongside midfielder Brad Jackson and striker Ntumba Massanka.Share this page :
