Striker Azeez has been borrowed from Charlton and his first month stay ends this week while defender O'Connor has another week remaining on his loan from Blackburn.

The pair have both impressed manager Alan Knill, who is pleased he will be able to keep the pair.

"Ade has given us something extra during the time he's been with us and he's learning all the time," Knill told the Western Morning News.

"If there's a better young defender in this league than Anthony O'Connor, I haven't seen him.

"I thought he was terrific. But he's like that every day in training as well.

"I've already spoken to Charlton and Blackburn, and they're happy for both players to stay."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
