Glenavon FC is delighted to confirm the signing of Derry City winger Josh Daniels on a two year deal. The 21 year-old completed the formalities after today’s 6-1 win at Ballymena United. “Josh is someone we’ve been interested in for a while and in fact last season we tried to get him on loan from Derry because we saw he wasn’t getting game time,” Glenavon manager Gary Hamilton told us after Josh finalized the deal today. “I’ve been keeping an eye on him for a couple of years and he’s a player who excites me. He’s a young, talented boy who can play on either wing or up front. He’s got pace, he’s got energy. He’s good at taking people on and making things happen in the final third. He fits the bill of what we’re looking for, we’re trying to bring young players in and get a hungry squad.
“We have to thank Derry as well. Josh was looking away to get game time, to play football and, to be fair they’ve been very, very good with him. We’ve come to an agreement in terms of if we ever sell him on they’ll get a percentage of it so it works for everybody. He’s just excited to get involved but he knows himself he has to wait his chance because the boys are flying at the moment but hopefully we’ll have another good young footballer on our hands,” Gary concluded.
