Former Dundalk centre half Andy Boyle is set for a sensational return to the Louth club after being released by Preston North End after two and a half years.
Dubliner Boyle was a pivotal part of Dundalk’s Europa League run in 2016 and will certainly add experience to the sides quest to repeat their 2016 run this season and get to the group stages of European competition again.
Boyle had spells at Doncaster Rovers and Dundee.
The deal is expected to be done within the next week which will make him available for the Riga tie.
Stephen Folan is expected to leave Oriel Park and is set for Derry City.
