Bohemians have completed the signing of winger Stephen Mallon from Sheffield United.

Mallon, who represented Northern Ireland at underage level before switching his allegiances to the Republic of Ireland – a decision he has since reversed, spent last season on loan at Derry City. 

The 21-year-old from Belfast also has experience of Australia's A-League having lined out for Central Coast Mariners in 2019. 

Welcoming Mallon to Dalymount Park, manager Keith Long said: "Having lost two key wide players in Danny Grant and Kris Twardek in recent months, wide areas are a position where we have been looking to strengthen since those departures.

"In Stephen, we have an exciting winger who will give us options on both wings – be it on his natural side on the left or as a reverse winger on the right.

"He is young, hungry to prove himself, and this is a big season for him. He knows the league having been on loan at Derry last season and I believe he will prove to be a key signing for us."
