bruce

Cork City FC have confirmed that Brian Lenihan has signed for English Premier League side Hull City.

Lenihan made 21 league appearances for the club this season, and his excellent form led to a call up for the Republic of Ireland Under 21 squad in May.

Commenting on the news, Pat Lyons, Chairman of Cork City FC, said: “We would like to wish Brian the best of luck in the next stage of his career. Since he joined us, Brian has been a credit to his family and to his schoolboy club, College Corinthians; showing a fantastic attitude and excellent ability, which I am sure will see him progress far in the game.”

“As a club, we never want to see our best players depart, however we are pleased that we have reached what we believe to be a fair and reasonable agreement with Hull for his transfer, and that Cork City FC stands to benefit further should Brian continue to progress as we all expect him to do.”

The tigers beat off competition from Arsenal, Brighton and Celtic to add Lenihan to their ranks.
