O'Shea staying at Galway


Recommended Posts

Galway United have confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Barry Ryan and have also announced that talented midfielder Jay O’Shea will be remaining with the club.

Republic of Ireland U21 star O’Shea had been expected to move to Coca Cola Championship side Derby County after the two clubs agreed a deal prior to Christmas and the youngster himself agreed terms.

However, the English side have pulled out of the move due to a deterioration in the financial situation at the club. It all leaves O’Shea now looking forward to linking up with his Galway team-mates again and trying to further the great strides he made last season as he helped the club stay in the top flight.

"It is a disappointment that the transfer did not work out but at this stage all I want to do is get back playing football,†he said.

“I had a great season with Galway United last year and all attention now turns to making a solid start to the new season and move on from there.â€Â

Meanwhile, manager Ian Foster has acted quickly to replace netminder Gary Rogers who joined St Patrick’s Athletic this week. Ryan arrives in the opposite direction and Foster is delighted to have a player with such experience in his squad ahead of the new campaign.

"Barry is a top class keeper and he is an important signing as we continue to build the side for the new season," said the manager.
