Scouts circling Lafferty

DANIEL Lafferty could be playing his last game for Derry City tonight as a number of cross-channel clubs are tracking the ex-Celtic man.

Lafferty has been one of the most consistent players in a Derry side which surprised many by securing a third-place finish in their first season back in the top flight, and a number of British clubs are reportedly sending scouts to check on Lafferty in tonight's season finale at home to Bohemians.

"The rate of improvement of Daniel has impressed this season," said Derry boss Stephen Kenny. "This time last year people were coming up to me and saying that they thought Daniel wasn't good enough. He's performed out of skin this year and he's been an integral part of why the team has done so well."
