In-demand goalkeeper Shane Supple has agreed a new two-year deal with Bohemians.

The former Ipswich player had attracted interest from Cork City and Shamrock Rovers but has committed his future to the Gypsies.

Supple quit the game after leaving Ipswich in 2009 and had ambitions of challenging Stephen Cluxton for the Dublin number-one shirt but came back to soccer in 2015 and joined Bohs last year.

Defender Rob Cornwall has also signed a new one-year arrangement with Keith Long's Gypsies, who are booked for a top-half finish as a strong second half to their campaign eased relegation fears.

Bohs striker Izzy Akinade is being pursued by newly-promoted Waterford.

Meanwhile, champions Cork City last night announced that midfielder Gearoid Morrissey has signed a new two-year contract.

"I think it's the place to be," said Morrissey. "It will be my first time experiencing the Champions League and I am relishing the thought of it. Next year will be a special year as well."
