SPL sides chase McMillan

BOHEMIANS defender Evan McMillan is this week assessing his future as a move to the SPL could move closer.

The former UCD and St Patrick's Athletic man is in demand after a successful season with the Gypsies, when he scored eight league goals despite spending most of the season playing at centre-half, and LOI rivals Shamrock Rovers and Sligo Rovers are eager to sign McMillan.

But Hibernian boss Pat Fenlon has now expressed an interest, Dundee United are also keen and there's also reported interest from England, with ex-Sligo Rovers manager Paul Cook hopeful of luring McMillan to League Two side Chesterfield.

Meanwhile, Bohemians have signed defender Ciaran Nangle from UCD. Nangle spent three seasons in the first team at Belfield but Bohs boss Aaron Callaghan has persuaded him to move to Dalymount Park.

Shamrock Rovers could make a move to re-sign defender Conor Powell this week. The former U21 cap, who moved to the Hoops from Sligo Rovers at the start of last season, is out of contract but a new deal could be on the table.
