Foley signing to aid Limerick title tilt

DIVISION ONE side Limerick FC are poised to sign another former international as Dominic Foley is in the running for a move to the club.

The 35-year-old (pictured), who was capped six times at senior level by Mick McCarthy, previously played League of Ireland football for Bohemians in 2004-05, but has been based in Belgium for the past six years, playing for Gent and Cercle Bruges.

But he is now eager to return to Ireland and Limerick are believed to have offered former Wolves man Foley a player/coach role for the new season.

Limerick, who are red-hot favourites to win the eight-team Division One title next season, already have ex-Ireland cap Joe Gamble on the books and currently have Polish international Dawid Janczyk on trial from CSKA Moscow.

Meanwhile, Shamrock Rovers have been busy in the transfer market in the last 24 hours, allowing striker Dean Kelly to join St Patrick's Athletic, while the Hoops have signed Sligo Rovers winger Aaron Greene and Galway United goalkeeper Conor Winn.

Greene was expected to sign a new deal with Sligo after helping them win the FAI Cup last season, but Bit O'Red have now lost the player to their Dublin rivals in the chaos which has followed manager Paul Cook's exit from the Showgrounds.

Rovers boss Stephen Kenny last week signed Swede Oscar Jansson on loan from Tottenham and Winn will add competition for the keeper's shirt, as his arrival appears to confirm the exit of Ryan Thompson from the club.

Eric Foley has completed his move to Drogheda United from Monaghan United.
