Fenlon Seeks To Make Sligo Striker His First Signing

Sligo Rovers are hoping to keep hotshot Eoin Doyle after confirming Hibernian are keen to sign the striker on a free transfer.

Doyle’s contract at FAI Cup winners Sligo has expired and it has been reported that the 23-year-old has been training with SPL side Hibs, where it is believed he took part in a behind closed doors friendly yesterday.

Hibs boss Pat Fenlon, who formerly managed Bohemians, is now weighing up whether to add Doyle to his squad when the January transfer window reopens.

“Pat Fenlon has come in for him and it’s definitely something Eoin is interested in,” said Sligo spokesman Keith O’Dwyer in the Daily Record.

“We’re not 100 per cent sure he is going to sign and we would not give up hope that we can sign him for next year because he is a huge player for us.

“However, as Eoin is not a contracted player, he is entitled to seek fresh moves.

“Pat knows our manager Paul Cook very well so I would imagine he will have called him about this.”

Sligo have already drafted in numerous stars in the striking department with Mark Quigley moving from Dundalk and Danny North from St Patricks Athletic.
