Boro sign Birmingham midfielder on loan

Jay O’Shea joins on one-month deal from Premier League side

Stevenage have signed Birmingham City midfielder Jay O’Shea on a one-month loan deal.

The 22-year-old has made three appearances for City since joining from League of Ireland side Galway United in 2009, and spent a month on loan at Middlesbrough last season, starting once.

O’Shea is expected to get a run-out in the reserves’ fixture against Ipswich tonight (Wednesday) and will give Boro cover in midfield following injuries to Joel Byrom and Darren Murphy.
