Career to date

O’Riley started his career at Fulham and rose up through the academy of the London club.

He was a regular for the Cottagers at various youth levels before he made his first-team debut in a League Cup clash against Wycombe Wanderers in August 2017.

The midfielder went on to make a further 10 senior appearances before he left Craven Cottage in 2020.

Championship move? 

O’Riley has proven his worth in League One over the past 12 months and is now on the radar of Championship clubs.

The likes of Middlesbrough, Bournemouth, Huddersfield, Barnsley and Swansea have been mentioned and it will be interesting to see what happens this month.

MK Dons are currently 7th place and are four points out of the top six. They are in action this afternoon against Gillingham at home to kick-start 2022.
