PS Just what on earth is going on with McCarey, did he not report back for training? seems to be no news on his situation, very odd scenario really.
I have absolutely no idea but it could well be something personal. Perhaps we should cut the guy some slack.
It looks like Aaron McCarey is back in training

Good to be back at it today. Refreshed and recharged..

I was thinking recently on who we have long and short term, amazing how time flies by, as I'm almost sure two of our best players are out of contract end of season, Gannon and Duffy.

There could be a few more in the 'Up to end of 2020 boat' and obviously the club is very aware, but need to start negotiations early I would think, before the summer even.

We've been stung on more than a few occasions, Finn being a prime example.

Seems to be a decent move, hopefully we also have a clause to re-call him earlier, if injuries comes up. He is under contract to end of 2020. Def good to have him back for Europe.

PS Just what on earth is going on with McCarey, did he not report back for training? seems to be no news on his situation, very odd scenario really.

Completely agree, as its great to see him back training from the photos the club uploaded on twitter, he's a top keeper to have at the club.

The majority of the squad have contracts due to expire at the end of 2020.

This includes Gary Rogers, Seán Gannon, Brian Gartland, Seán Hoare, Jordan Flores, Michael Duffy, John Mountney, Georgie Kelly , Dane Massey, Sean Murray, Cameron Dummigan, Aaron McCarey.

The club have previously acknowledged the need to try to get contracts renewals sorted early.

But the reality is that just like Ronan Finn, Robbie Benson, Jamie McGrath and many others the club can't force anyone to sign a contract offer

DFC twitter says
Promising young attacker Val Adedokun has signed his first professional contract with #DundalkFC. The 16-year-old has flourished for the club’s Academy teams since arriving from Malahide United in 2017.

But we dont have an academy, nor do we do youth according to a certain set of fans up in the big smoke. We will surely be accused of stealing Dublins talent.

Hope the lad makes it, is given time for his leaving cert maybe a scholorship with DKIT and then he can concentrate on first team football. Nice to see the club doing it right.

Speculation rife that Lido Lotefa is about to join Bray Wanderers on loan.

Wise move for him to go get some game time

Lido won't get games here so yes a good move for him -- hope it goes well.

Were still light in quality options for no 8 and no 10.

I haven't seen enough of Taner Dogan or Cammy Smith to have a reasoned opinion, but with Dogan getting less than 10 minutes last night and no place for Smith it doesn't look like great for either.

Make sense of these tweets if you can

Cammy Smith no longer training with Dundalk but it is understood there is an interest in signing him.

The deals for Dundee United pair Cammy Smith and Matty Smith to move to Dundalk and Waterford, respectively, are not time sensitive due to the League of Ireland window remaining open until way into February. They, therefore, may be United players for a little longer

Interesting listening to VP interview post Malone cup. He obviously doesn’t see Flores as a 10. So that leaves McEleneny and Patching ( replacement for McGrath) . Great if Fats remains fit but if not , we’re reliant on an unproven young player. However , As a club we are in a catch 22 situation. There’s no #10 in the LOI who could improve us but any decent European one will cost a bomb or won’t want to relocate to Dundalk. Hopefully VP has something up his sleeve

Any idea as to why Smith is not training with Dundalk anymore?
