Clubs circling Micheál Glynn as Derry City end Glenavon loan deal early

Several Irish League clubs are reported to be showing an interest in Derry City defender Micheál Glynn.

The Candystripes have recalled the full back from his loan at Glenavon where he has impressed with his performances so far this season.

Larne are rumoured to be one of the clubs keen to bring the 20-year-old in on a permanent deal, with several others Danske Bank Premiership sides also keen.

Glynn, who spent last season on loan at Dungannon Swifts, has scored four times in 16 games for the Lurgan Blues.

They had employed the loanee in a more advanced role and it had paid dividends as he became a real goal threat and netted a spectacular strike in the 2-1 defeat to Linfield back in November.

Gary Hamilton was keen to keep the defender for the rest of the season, but with a number of clubs hoping to land Glynn on a permanent deal Derry boss Ruaidhri Higgins has recalled him from the loan early.

“Micheal has loads of ability and he’s been really good since he joined us," said Hamilton at the time.

"He came to us as a left-back but he’s a lot better further up the pitch."
