DUNDALK'S new signing Gabriel Sava expects Stephen Kenny's side to make a real push for honours next season.

The Italian-born keeper has ended his time with Drogheda United and moved to their Louth rivals Dundalk, signed by Stephen Kenny to challenge Peter Cherrie, who has been Dundalk's No. 1 for five seasons.

Dundalk went close to silverware last season, reaching the FAI Cup semi-finals and finishing second in the league but Sava is eager to bring success to Oriel Park.

"I am really happy to sign for the club. The had a great season last year which was great to see. Finishing as runners up from where they were the year before was excellent and this season should be just as good," he says.

"I am looking forward to competing in all competitions. Winning the league has to be the main objective but hopefully we can do well in everything and get some silverware."

Sava is the fourth major signing of the close season for Dundalk who had already signed up Sean Gannon (St Pats), David McMillan (Sligo) and Daryl Horgan (Cork City).
