Airdrieonians manager Ian Murray hopes Harris O’Connor can earn himself a ‘good offer’ in England amid interest from clubs like Sunderland.

The young defender has been on trial at the cinch League One side this summer but Murray will not sign him permanently. Sunderland are one team said to be interested in signing him while Stoke City and Watford are also keen on the free agent who left Rangers earlier this summer.

Murray says that with the options O’Connor has south of the border, it’s not right to keep him in Scotland (Lanarkshire Live): “We felt that it probably wasn’t the right thing for us and Harris had good options down south.

“He can go there and impress teams so there was no point in holding on to him and being unfair on him. He had an excellent attitude. We wish him well down in England and hopefully he can get a good offer.”
