In arguably the biggest LOI signing of the pre-season to date, Cork City have announced the sigining of Irish international Liam Miller, previously at Brisbane Roar. In what represents a coup for the club, the 33 year old, 21-cap international, joins the club ahead of their upcoming title push.
Speaking to Cork City, he says his aim is "to win the league", not an unlikely feat for a club who surprised many by finishing a close second to Dundalk last year. He goes onto say;
I am delighted to be returning home. I will be proud to wear the Cork City jersey and do what I can for the team in front of all my family and friends.
After seeing internationals Keith Fahey and Stephen McPhail rejoining the league last season, there has been somewhat of a boom of previous Irish internationals chosing to wind down their career on home shores.
With Turners Cross already housing the largest crowds in the league, the signing of a home-town hero will only do more to cement their popularity in the rebel county.
