Filling the void left by the departure of Chris Conte will be new face, Jamie O’Brien.
The striker has been linked with a move to the NASL for some time now, and with Conte leaving the club, there’s little room for the 20-year-old.
However, O’Connor, who was signed by the club in 2015, says he’s not yet ready to make a decision.
“I’m still not sure,” he told Radio Vigo.
“But if I’m going to make an announcement I’m not going to put the news out in a public place, I’m just going to wait and see.”
That’s what I want, to wait for the right time and when I’m comfortable with what I’m doing.
“O’Connor’s first big decision will be on the left side of the pitch, where the club have recently signed Australian striker Dylan De Vanna, who has scored 12 goals for the club.
De Vanna is expected to fill the same role as the new arrivals, with O’Leary saying he has to start quickly.”
The key for me is that I have to get going fast, because we have a lot of young players coming in,” O’Learns said.”
So that’s what you want.
You want to be the guy in the middle of the park.””
The only thing that’s changed is Dylan has a bigger role, so that will give me more options.
“Hopefully he can be the focal point of our attack.”
Ollie O’Donnell was a target for Minnesota Energy after a promising debut season with the club back in 2016.

O’Leary admits that the decision was tough for him to make, but it was worth it.
“It’s not easy to go back and play for a club like Minnesota,” he said.
“But you want to play for your country and you want your country to win.”
You want to do your best and try to play every game.
“And when you do that, you can’t expect to win every game and lose every game because it’s not just about you.”
When you’re in a club, you want the best for the team and the best is what you can achieve.
