Watford midfielder Luke O’Nien has joined Conference South side Wealdstone for the rest of the season on a youth loan.

O’Nien was handed a second 12-month professional contract by the Hornets this summer after initially not receiving a deal.

The 19-year-old spent the final month of last season on loan at Wealdstone and the clubs have held discussions during the course of the summer regarding O’Nien’s return.

The midfielder, who has also played in defence for the Golden Boys, made his Watford debut as a late substitute in the 3-0 win over Barnsley in March – his only outing for the club.
