Bohemians have made their first moves in the transfer market for the 2019 season by bringing in midfielder Conor Levingston and goalkeeper James Talbot.

Having lost three key members of the 2018 squad, Bohs boss Keith Long needed reinforcements but he's pleased with the arrival of the ex-Ireland youth internationals, while Robbie McCourt and Cristian Magerusan have signed new deals.

"These are the kind of players we want. We want to work with young, talented players who are hungry to show people what they can do," Long said of his new signings.

Wexford native Levingston arrives after a long spell with Wolves.

Former Dublin GAA prospect Talbot spent five years at Sunderland.

Meanwhile, new Derry City boss Declan Devine has promised to bring back an "identity" to the club.

Devine was in charge of City before, winning an FAI Cup in 2012, and he's been brought back as successor to Kenny Shiels, Devine unveiled in Derry last night.

"We need an identity, we need passion, we need support, we need players who are going to respect and honour what it means to play for Derry City and fundamentally that's what it comes down to; respect and honour and knowing what the jersey means," Devine explained.
