Shamrock Rovers have signed left back Danny Lafferty.
The 30 year old has played 13 times for Northern Ireland and has played for Derry City, Sheffield United and Burnley.
Speaking to the Rovers site, Stephen Bradley said:
“Danny had a few offers. He’s been talking to a few clubs in England but he and his wife decided that they wanted to move home. Once we heard that we moved to sign him very quickly.
He’s a very good footballer, a very attacking player and a good age for us. He ticks a lot of boxes that we want. It’s a very good signing for us.
With Trevor Clarke gone, we felt it was an area that we needed to strengthen and it’s another quality left-footed player in the squad so we’re delighted to get him in.
If you look at his career he’s played at a really high level throughout. He has massive experience at club and international level. He’s had two promotions to the Premier League with two different clubs and I think that speaks for itself in terms of the quality he has and the level he’s played at.
When you sit down and speak to him and you see he still has that hunger and desire to go and be successful, that was important for us as well”.
