Limerick have completed the signing of Sligo Rovers duo Joseph Ndo and winger Kieran Djilali.

Four-time league winner Ndo has joined on loan in a player/coach capacity under new boss Martin Russell, while Djilali has completed a permanent move to the Thomond Park side.

Russell said: “We’re delighted to get Joseph on board. He has come to Limerick as a player/coach so he will have responsibility on the coaching side of things as well.

“He will be a valuable asset to us. He will not be available this week through injury but hopefully we will see him in a Limerick shirt as soon as possible.

“Joseph has a lot to add on the playing end too. He was very interested in coming here and he’ll be very valuable to us and will be very good for the players around him.

“He has been one of if not the best player in the league in the last decade and we’re all looking forward to working with him when we get back on the training field on Thursday.

“Kieran has also come to us from Sligo. He’s an exciting, attacking player and it all augurs well for us. Kieran is in contention for Friday’s game against Shamrock Rovers.”

Ndo was part of Cameroon’s 1998 and 2002 World Cup squad, while Djilali is a former Crystal Palace and Wimbledon player.
