Double champions Cork City have added another player to their squad with the signing of the versatile Colm Horgan from relegated Galway United.

Cork lost Greg Bolger to Shamrock Rovers earlier this week but added Barry McNamee from Derry yesterday and have now confirmed another on a two-year deal. 

"I am absolutely delighted; I am coming down to join the champions of Ireland and I just want to get going," Horgan told the club's website.

"The season may have only just ended, but I am already looking forward to next year. The intensity and the work-rate of the team has impressed me, the way they play on the front foot. The players they have are players with unbelievable individual ability, but they also work really well as a unit.

"We have to go for the league again. John wanted me to come down because I am hungry. I am coming down to Cork to win trophies; whatever competition we play in, I want to win. I also want to progress as far as we can in Europe."

City boss John Caulfield added: "Colm has been with Galway for the last number of years and he can play right across the back four.

"He is versatile, tenacious and he is a great crosser of the ball. He has a tremendous attitude; we had Daryl here before, he had a great attitude and Colm is the same. Again, he is another player we are bringing in that we feel is coming into his prime."
