Aston Villa

Premier League club join race for in-demand Championship target



Sunderland are the latest club to express an interest in Dundalk winger Daryl Horgan, according to a report by the Telegraph.

Sunderland will compete with their North East rivals Newcastle United and a host of other clubs in a bid to land Horgan.

Preston, Reading, Aston Villa, Birmingham, Rangers, Celtic and a number of MLS sides are the other reported interested parties.

Daryl Horgan has been so impressive for League of Ireland outfit Dundalk as he guided them to the league title.

Dundalk are also well placed to progress in the Europa League as they sit second in their group and Horgan’s future hinges on their chances of progression.

The 24-year-old netted away at Zenit St Petersburg in the Europa League and has been a constant goal threat from the wide areas.

His impressive performances for Dundalk have even earned him a call-up to the Republic of Ireland senior squad under Martin O’Neill, although he was an unused substitute in the World Cup qualifying clash away in Austria.

Horgan’s contract expires in less than a month and he has already said that he’d be open to all options.

Championship fans – can you fend Sunderland and a number of other clubs off to land Horgan? Let us know in the comments below…
