Celtic youngster Lee O'Connor looks set for a loan move out of Parkhead.

The Irish defender is yet to play for the Hoops first-team but has turned out for the academy side.

Game time has been hard to come by for the 19-year-old right-back with Jeremie Frimpong and Moritz Bauer both ahead of him in the pecking order.

Celtic also have Hatem Abd Elhamed to return from injury, so O'Connor would be unlikely to break through this season.

It is understood Oxford United are hoping to take the player to the Kassam Stadium.

O'Connor joined Celts from Manchester United where he played once for the under-21s in an EFL Cup match against Rotherham.

He has also played twice for Ireland's under-21s, scoring once and providing an assist against Sweden and New Zealand respectively.
