Gareth Southgate has sanctioned O'Neil's request for a return to Portsmouth in the New Year, although he did put up a fight to keep him.

It is reported in the Daily Mail that the Boro player is homesick and wants a move back to the south coast.
Portsmouth manager Tony Adams sees him as a replacement for Lassana Diarra, following his £20million move to Real Madrid.
