Sheridan leaves Nicosia after doing league and cup double

IRELAND international Cillian Sheridan is on the move as the striker has confirmed his exit from Cypriot club Apoel Nicosia.

The Cavan native had a two-year spell in Cyprus which saw him play Champions League football against Barcelona and PSG, but at the conclusion of their season, which saw Apoel retain the league title and win the Cypriot Cup, Sheridan's contract has not been renewed.

"Thank you APOEL for a wonderful and successful two years, unfortunately last night turned out to be my farewell," Sheridan said on twitter.

Sheridan, who had previously played in England and Scotland and also enjoyed a spell in Bulgaria, will now assess his options before deciding on his next move.

In other transfer news, SPL side St Johnstone have signed ex-Cork City striker Graham Cummins from Exeter City. The Saints had earlier agreed terms with Aberdeen's Irish defender Joe Shaughnessy.

Defender Bradley Garmston, who has just been named in the Ireland U21 squad for two friendly games against England next week, is also on the move as he's been released by West Brom.

The 21-year-old, who had a loan spell with Gillingham last season, had spent eight years at the Hawthorns but was unable to break into the first team.
