RICHARD O’DONNELL JOINS BRISTOL CITY ON LOAN

12 January 2016

Wigan Athletic confirm Richard O’Donnell moves to Bristol City on loan for the rest of the season.

  • Richard O’Donnell moves to Bristol City until the end of the season.
  • Richard O’Donnell made 12 appearances for Latics.
  • “We wish him all the best for the rest of the season “- Gary Caldwell.
The club can confirm that goalkeeper Richard O’Donnell has joined Bristol City on loan until the end of the season.

He goes straight into the Robins’ squad to face Preston North End in the Sky Bet Championship tonight, Tuesday January 12.

The 27-year-old joined Latics last summer after his contract ended at Walsall and began the season in Gary Caldwell’s team, before losing his place to Jussi Jaaskelainen in October.

Manager Gary Caldwell says:

“Richard is a great pro who has kept working hard on the training ground and we are lucky enough to have three quality keepers now that Lee Nicholls has returned from his loan.

“The opportunity came up at Bristol for him to get some game time under his belt with their injury situation and we wish him all the best for the rest of the season. We will reassess everything in the summer.”
