....Mansfield Town, accepted a fee for the defender.
Cox is resigned to losing the 20-year-old, but says that the fee received from his sale will be used to strengthen the squad.
Cox said: "Luke will be leaving. An offer has been accepted from Burnley.
"A lot of people will see it as 'we should be keeping our best players,' but unless you're Manchester United, Barcelona or Real Madrid, you're a selling club.
"The offer received matched our value of Luke and the chairman John Radford has said that the money we receive can be used to spend on players.
"It's a move that will suit all parties. We will have a decent fee and Burnley will have a good player," he added.
O'Neill made forty-four league appearances in an impressive debut season with the Stags last term.
