Bohemians teenager Danny McGrath moves to Belgian side Lommel
Ireland under-17 international Danny McGrath has completed a move to Belgian side Lommel for an undisclosed fee.
McGrath, 17, signed a professional contract with the Gypsies earlier this year and has become a regular in their first-team squad this year.
He also played in Bohs’ Leinster Senior Cup semi-final win over Shelbourne in July.
“I am delighted to have this opportunity to develop to my full potential,” McGrath said after joining Lommel.
“I am also very thankful to all the coaches at Bohs, St Kevin’s and Balbriggan FC who have helped me along the way so far.”
Bohemians Head of Academy Craig Sexton added: “We are extremely proud of Danny’s progress and development.
“Danny has had a really good upbringing in terms of his football and has already enjoyed personal success in his own right in terms of international recognition.
“He is another success story of the academy system, and is making a positive step forward in his career and hopefully in time we will see him progressing in senior football and have a fruitful career.
“He is going to balance his football with his education when he is in Belgium too, so he is going to finish his Leaving Cert, which is very important and a big positive.
“Everyone at the club, and all the coaches who have worked with him at St Kevin’s and at Bohs, wish him the very best with the move and with his future career.”
