Current Northern Ireland international Niall McGinn has been released by his club side Aberdeen yesterday.
The Dungannon man had been with the Scottish side since 2012 making nearly 180 appearances over the 5 year period.
Dundalk manager Stephen Kenny had previously managed the winger at Derry City in 2008 after signing him from Dungannon Swifts.
McGinn featured 31 times for Derry under Kenny that season scoring 6 times and also won the League Cup with the Candy Stripes.
Dundalk are starting another European adventure this July in the Champions League qualifiers and Stephen Kenny will be hoping to emulate the success of their 2016 European campaign.
Would an experienced Niall McGinn help some of the younger members of the squad with the bigger occasions in European football and add quality to an already strong Dundalk midfield? We think so.
Local sources have mentioned that Stephen Kenny could be looking for a winger in this transfer window anyway and Mcginn’s talents & experience could be a perfect match for the Louth club.
There are rumours of some League One / Championship clubs after the Northern Irishman’s signature but maybe he would like to be reunited with an old boss with the attraction of European football on offer?
We will wait and see.
