Dundalk have received a boost after the departure of Richie Towell by agreeing a new contract with exciting winger Daryl Horgan.

The winger spent time on trial with League One side Peterborough after playing an influential role in the Louth side's double success this year, but it ultimately led to nothing and he has opted to pledge his future to the Lilywhites.

Horgan (23) scored 11 times from 41 appearances for Dundalk in 2015 and is targeted progression in Champions League next season.

“Europe is a big one," he said today, after committing himself to Stephen Kenny's plans for 2016. "I’m really looking forward to it but the fact that we are unseeded makes it a little bit more difficult. We will get a difficult draw no matter who we get.

“It’s an ambition of ours though to do well in Europe and hopefully we can make inroads, get through a round or two and see what happens."

Horgan starred for Dundalk in their FAI Cup final success at the Aviva Stadium last month, with his driving run creating the opportunity for Brighton recruit Towell to slot home the winner.
