Article by Johnny Ward who does a LOI podcast with Dan McDonnell. Kelly is terrific and would be a great addition.

Why does this feel like the Karl Sheppard fiasco all over again

Was the George Kelly rumour not doing the rounds over the winter too? We could certainly do with another striker especially if Marco is on his way out and Sam Byrne cursed with bad luck.

Georgie Kelly was closely linked with a move last close season. My recollection is that he is due to finish his degree this summer and therefore was not going to be able to train full-time in the first part of the season. It may well be that SK and the player made an agreement to sign in the July window after this finals were complete and that the player in turn agreed the terms of his departure with UCD before signing a new contract there

That's all conjecture on my part, but my instinct is that there is some substance to this rumour

Would Dylan Connolly be Dundalk’S most expensive signing ? On Kelly good signing great prospect.

Young Georgie tweeted in the last few mins “FAKE NEWS”, read into that what you want

Tweet was deleted since. Id say Stephen Napier is still probably the most expensive signing considerin the time and relative wealth of the club now as opposed to 1997 and then what transpired a season or two after. Stuart Connolly would have to be the most expensive flop and again with limited money available in the co-op days.

Gavin McLaughlin tweet clarifying the Georgie Kelly remours
DFC | Spoke to @DundalkFC manager Stephen Kenny today. He said reports that UCD striker Georgie Kelly had agreed to join the club are 'not true' and that he will be looking to bring in a replacement for outgoing strength and conditioning coach Graham Byrne. #DundalkSport

I'd imagine he thought he'd be first choice striker moving to our league. He hasn't shown enough unfortunately to dislodge Hoban and its not like he's a young lad that will develop. Might be the best for all concerned. Hopefully Burnes injury isn't too bad and he can get some game time now

Heard that myself the other night at Pats game, but Dundalk were training Weds and the pics of the team training were on Dundalks Facebook page and Marco was in them.

Any truth in rumours of a Daryl Horgan return?

Really can't see a snowballs chance in hell of this happening. But it would be the fantasy signing. Imagine him and Duffy on the wings we'd be tearing teams to shreds
