Burnley in McMahon link

Last updated : 02 January 2009 By Tony Scholes
McMahon enjoyed a month's loan with Blackpool in November 2007 and played two games. This season he had a three month stint at Hillsborough and made fifteen appearances for them.

He's been back in the Middlesbrough side since returning from Sheffield and has started three of their last four league games against Arsenal, Fulham and Everton.

McMahon, aged 22, is out of contract in the summer, and reports suggest we could be set to snap him up for a small fee. He certainly looks to be a combatitive player with five yellow cards and one red in his eighteen appearances this season.

He's not the first right back we've been linked with recently. Bristol City's Bradley Orr was also placed on the radar after reports of a move in the Sunday press a couple of weeks ago.
