Ollie Horgan has secured the signature of influential Finn Harps midfielder Gareth Harkin for the forthcoming League of Ireland Division One campaign.
Harkin was outstanding in the second part of last season and was a firm favourite amongst the Finn Harps faithful.
Harkin didn’t feature much in the earlier part of last season, but once he established himself in the side he became a key player.
He was outstanding in their FAI cup victories over Avondale and Wexford Youths.
Despite receiving a red card late on against St Patrick’s Athletic in the semi-final, Harkin was Harps best performer on the day.
Harkin has been touted by a number of Irish League clubs during the off season.
The former Coleraine midfielder was linked with a move to Institute, but he has decided to commit his future to Finn Harps.
The signature will be warmly welcomed by the club’s supporters as Horgan continues to build his squad for next season.
Horgan will be delighted he has secured the services of Harkin as he attempts to build a team that can challenge for promotion.
Sean McCarron is also on the radar of Irish League clubs, McCarron has been linked heavily with a move to Institute.
With Institute striker Stephen O’Flynn set to make the move to Linfield, Paul Kee is poised to make a move for McCarron.
One player who looks very unlikely to return to Finn Park is Josh Mailey.
Mailey has been linked with a move to Dungannon Swifts and is rumoured to moving to Stangmore Park in January.Tags:
