King's Lynn Town set to bring in Irish defender
King's Lynn Town are close to completing the signing of defender Kyle Callan-McFadden from Sligo Rovers.
The League of Ireland club has said the 26-year-old is heading to West Norfolk, with the former Norwich City youth player telling them he had been attracted by the Walks outfit's ambition.
A post on the Linnets' Twitter feed a short time ago said the club was "aware" of the story.
It added: "We hope to have the relevant paperwork completed as quickly as possible before he joins up with the Linnets."
Callan-McFadden told the Sligo Rovers website there were both football and family reasons for the move.
He said: “During the first lockdown I got the phone call. I know the manager as he was part of the first-team coaching staff at Norwich when I was there.
"We spoke about it as a family and we thought it was right to move back to England. It has been six years since Ella has been living near her family and friends.
"We had a great life in Ireland but Ella has a job secured in the NHS. It came fast but it’s the right time to move on. It’s a wee change for me after four years here.”
He continued: “When a club shows ambition to get up the ladder in England, it’s good of course.
"I spoke to some players I know over there from my time at Norwich and they all said positive things.
"They have an aim in place for two to three years and that’s something I want to be part (of). I’m looking forward to it."
