Cam​eron McJannet the latest Derry City player to pen new deal

Derry City defender Cameron McJannet has signed a new two year deal with the club.

McJannett, 23, joined the club in 2020 and was instrumental in the Foylesiders' successful late push for European qualification last season.

He has also been an important figure in Derry's unbeaten charge to the top of the Premier Division this term.

City boss Ruaidhri Higgins has rewarded the versatile centre-half with a contract extension, with his current deal up at the end of the season.

McJannett is the eighth player on Derry's books to sign on until the end of 2024 or beyond that.

“I honestly didn’t have to think twice about it,” McJannett said.

“There’s a great feel around the club and you know that everyone is pulling in the same direction.

“Ruaidhri and the management team have a clear plan and everyone is buying into it.

“As a reasonably young footballer I know you can’t take anything for granted, but my future is sorted and it’s good to have that security.

“We have a lot of quality players here and I really like the city itself. Everyone is so friendly and I just want to crack on now and try to help bring success to Derry City.”
