Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill has added Lee Hodson to the squad for their upcoming friendly against Malta.

The 21-year-old is currently on loan at Brentford from Watford and will win his 10th cap if selected.

The match will take place at the Ta’Qali National Stadium on Wednesday, February 6.

Meanwhile, Kilmarnock have signed Northern Ireland international Sammy Clingan on an 18-month deal.

The 29-year-old was looking for a club after being released by Doncaster last month following a short spell where he made nine appearances.

Manager Kenny Shiels said: “Sammy is a really good player. He passes the ball well, gets into good positions and knows the game so he is one we need badly.”

Clingan, who has 33 caps, started his career with Wolves before playing for Chesterfield, Nottingham Forest, Norwich and Coventry.

He is eligible for Wednesday night’s Clydesdale Bank Premier League clash at Celtic Park.
