Former Shamrock Rovers boss Trevor Croly could be on his way back to Bohemians in a coaching role as the Gypsies look to replace their departing assistant manager Graham O'Hanlon.

But one man on the move is Paul Corry who is poised to resume his League of Ireland career with the Hoops after a spell in England.

Bohs are trying to tie up the majority of last season's squad but to date only Shane Supple and Ismahil Akinade have signed up for 2017. There will be one change at Dalymount Park as O'Hanlon, who had been Keith Long's assistant, is leaving after six years at the club.

"From a personal point of view, the time has now come to move on to new challenges, including completing my UEFA Pro Licence," said O'Hanlon. "I want to wish the club, the fans, Keith and his staff all the very best of luck for the season ahead."

Bohs have spoken to Croly, who was previously on the coaching staff under boss Gareth Farrelly.

Croly's most recent club, Rovers, are close to agreeing a deal with Corry, who had been training after injury at Northampton Town ended his time there.

Also on the move is midfielder Jimmy Keohane, who has left Sligo Rovers and joined Cork City.

"Every time I played against Cork City with Sligo, it was always a tough game," he said. "Because they have shown a lot of consistency over the last couple of years. They are closing the gap on Dundalk, which you can see by the fact that City won the cup."
