Lenihan completes transfer to Hull
31 Aug 2014 20:08
Hull City manager Steve Bruce has confirmed the signing of Cork City defender Brian Lenihan.
-
Lenihan attracted interest from a number of clubs in England and the Tigers have saw off competition from Brighton to complete the deal for the 20-year-old.
-
It is likely Lenihan will go straight into the club's development squad rather than challenging for a first-team place.
-
The fee has not yet been disclosed but could be worth over £200,000 according to reports.
-
"Lenihan is done and dusted. He's one for the future," said Bruce after their 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa today.
-
The rising star made 21 league appearances for the Leesiders this season, and his excellent form led to a call up for the Republic of Ireland Under-21 squad in May.
-
Commenting on the transfer, Cork chairman Pat Lyons said: “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.”
