Mansfield Town manager John Dempster has heaped praise on Leeds United loanee Conor Shaughnessy, who has made an impressive impact since his arrival from the Championship side.
Conor Shaughnessy joined Mansfield Town on loan in the summer transfer window, which will keep him at the club until the end of the season. Since his arrival, he has shown his versatility, playing in defence as well as midfield.
The Irishman’s performances have impressed manager John Dempster, who has said that he is a valuable asset to the club. Speaking about Shaughnessy (quotes via the Yorkshire Evening Post), Dempster said:
“Conor is a good footballer and a calm, composed character. He is someone who has performed well for us in defence and in midfield. He brings flexibility to the squad and is a good size, so handy at set-pieces both for and against. He is a good, young player and someone we did well to get into the building as he had certainly added to our squad.”
While Dempster has been thoroughly impressed with the displays of Shaughnessy since his arrival from Leeds United, the 36-year-old has said be believes there is more to come from the defender, praising him for the hard work he puts in during training.
“I believe there is more to come. Conor has not had loads of football this season after his spell in Scotland last season. So I expect him to go from strength to strength. He trains very hard every day and I expect his levels to go up consistently over the forthcoming weeks.”
