Derry City manager Declan Devine has been impressed with the striker during his recent trial at the club and he is hopeful that the new man can make his mark at the Brandywell.

“He’s the type of player we’ve been after- strong and direct and he has looked good since coming in.”

“He can play anywhere across the front three and he will give us good options in attack.”

“He’s here until the end of the season initially but if things go well over the next few weeks I’d be hopeful he’ll be here longer.”

“I think he’s another player that our supporters will enjoy watching.”

The club yesterday signed former Liverpool player Adam Hammil.
