Horgan completes move to Scottish side Hibs

Horgan completes move to Scottish side Hibs

Former Dundalk FC winger Daryl Horgan has signed for Scottish Premier League side Hibernian from Preston North End for an undisclosed fee.

The Irish international has penned a three year deal with the club and will, subject to international clearance, be available for selection for Sunday’s Ladbrokes Premiership clash with St Johnstone.

The 25 year old made the breakthrough at Sligo Rovers and then Cork City, before moving to Dundalk.

He was a key part of the Dundalk side that reached the UEFA Champions League play-off round before making the move to England with Preston.

He made his international debut in 2017 in a friendly for the Republic of Ireland against Iceland.

Horgan said: “I am delighted to have made the move to Hibs.

“I’ve spoken to the manager and am excited for his plans for the season ahead.

“Obviously the boys have started well in Europe and the league – they had a good season last year and the ambition is there to follow that up with another successful year.

“I’m ready to play and looking forward to trying to break into the team.”

Head Coach Neil Lennon said: “We are very pleased to welcome Daryl to the club.

“He’s one we’ve been keen on for a long time and it’s a real coup to get him over the line.

“Daryl will give us a real threat going forward and some strength out wide – we had been looking to add in that area and I’m delighted with the options we now have.

“He has power and pace and will hopefully give us another dimension to our play in the final third.”
