Premier League Manager Confirms Interest In Daryl Horgan

There's been a pretty big twist in the Daryl Horgan transfer rumor mill. A Premier League manager has confirmed his side's interest in him.

Having already admitted that he'd have to 'consider' an offer from a major club, today's Irish Mirror has an interview with Hull City boss Mike Phelan.

Phelan was in Tallaght on Thursday evening to watch Horgan's Dundalk fall to a 1-0 defeat to AZ. The Galway native had been recommended off performances against Zenit and Maccabi Tel-Aviv.

He's played in Europe and it was important that I went to have a look after my scouts had brought him to our attention.

He's an intelligent football player. He probably didn't show as much as he can on Thursday night.

I was there to see a couple of players on show and now I'll discuss it with my staff.

The last major player to make the jump from League of Ireland to the Premier League? One small lad called James McClean back in 2011.


The Tigers have struggled with injuries throughout the year, something which Phelan later admitted.

We've made no secret of the fact we do need players in and back up what we've already got.

At the moment we are short in numbers and we do need to give these players an opportunity in the second part of the season to have a chance.

There seems to be a lot of competition for the winger's signature, with Birmingham, Newcastle and Sunderland already having being linked to him.

Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy was also present on Thursday to keep watch.

Any side that does want to sign him will need to pay a fee. Dundalk's exploits mean that he is contracted until they exit the competition.


It'll be an interesting few weeks for Dundalk as they try and create even more history.
