IRELAND U21 GOALKEEPER Kieran O’Hara has been added to Manchester United’s Champions League squad.

As reported by the Manchester Evening News, the Manchester-born stopper comes in as fourth-choice and joins the Red Devils’ European panel along with fellow reserve-team player Demetri Mitchell.

They are among six players on the B list, along with Joel Pereira, Axel Tuanzebe, Scott McTominay and Marcus Rashford. Clubs must submit 25 players on the A list, but can include an unlimited number on the B list.

According to Uefa: “A player may be registered on List B if he is born on, or after, 1 January 1996 and has been eligible to play for the club concerned for any uninterrupted period of two years since his 15th birthday (players aged 16 may be registered if they have been registered with the club for the previous two years).

Clubs are entitled to register an unlimited number of players on List B during the season, but the list must be submitted by no later than 24:00CET the day before a match.”

O’Hara has had loan spells at Morecambe and Stockport in recent years, and took part in pre-match preparations for a number of Europa League games last season.

After choosing to represent the Boys in Green, he made his international debut last November in an U21 friendly against Slovakia in La Manga.
