It seems Kenny Shiels is set to lose Ronan Curtis in the summer with Portsmouth the club that seem set to sign the goal scorer.
Speaking to the Derry Journal, Kenny Shiels had this to say on the potential move,
“It’s my club who will make the final decision on that but we hope to have him here for the summer,” said Shiels.
“We want to work on the principle that when we exit from Europe the player can go which is the logical step. But I’m really not in a position to say what his position is.”
“When you’re a forward and you score goals and you’re young you’re looking at a lot of value there. Wheras if you’re a full-back or a centre back it’s a much different level of value. Ronan is a player who has a bright future.
“The decision is upstairs, it’s not with me,” confirmed Shiels. “I know how the game in England works. This club has got the tradition of accommodating players who want to get to the professional game in England and Scotland. Derry City have always been supportive of that so we don’t see any need to change that. We will just have to rebuild again.”
