Dundalk FC are pleased to announce the arrival of Daniel Cleary.

Cleary. who linked up with the squad earlier this week, has penned a two-year contract at Oriel Park and the move is subject to international clearance.
Speaking to dundalkfc.com after putting pen to paper he was “delighted” to sign for the Lilywhites.
“I’m delighted to get settled in and I’m looking forward to the games kicking in on Friday. I’m ready to go now, I can’t wait for it to start and get points on the board.
“The gaffer contacted me and I was delighted to come up here and grabbed the chance, I’m settled in now and ready to go.
“I knew a few of the lads before I came up here so I’ve settled in quite quickly and I think I’ll get to know the rest of the lads quite soon.
“I’ve watched the League of Ireland during the summers when I’d come home and Dundalk is probably the biggest club in Ireland at the moment, they’ve won the league numerous times and kicked on in Europe so I’m looking forward to doing that myself.
“I can’t wait for the season to start, that’s what I look forward to – competative games, and get three points on to the board straight away, that’s what we’re looking for.”
