“He is a player that I watched a number of years ago in Ireland and I have followed his career ever since, through the Republic of Ireland youth age groups from U16 to U21 level. All the reports we have had on him are exceptional and, with James joining, it gives us more defensive versatility.”

“They beat a lot of clubs to his signature. He’s found himself in and out of their team this season but he’s got bundles of ability and can play across the front three positions. Left-wing, right-wing, can play as a 10 – he’s a very creative player that wants to get on the ball and score goals. He will give us a creative spark at the top end of the pitch.”

“As with most of the signings this summer, the enthusiasm and the appetite from the lad when I spoke to him about coming here was infectious.
