Dundalk are still hopeful of signing Patrick Hoban and have also made a move for Bray Wanderers' Aaron Greene.

You can register one additional player per round the day before the round begins. For Europa League that is midnight CET on the Wednesday before the first leg. Not sure about the CL if its the Monday or the Tuesday if your game was Wednesday.

Maybe he is being held back for the CL group stages!

Championship football in Scotland? No thanks! Unless his wage packet will be significantly heavier playing with Dundee united, he should stay put. All those architectural nixers will be out the window if he joins them.

According to the Scottish Sun article McMillan is interested

United want the 28-year-old now but won’t pay Dundalk’s asking price to get him before January.

SunSport understands McMillan, who works as an architect in Dublin, is keen to have a crack at full-time football.

But he looks unlikely to sign at Tannadice before the start of the SPFL.

Well if that's the case, we need back up soon. Also, a number of English clubs showing interest in McElhaney according to LiveatOriel. Club could be decimated once again and the back up we have doesn't seem to be up to the task at the moment.

Thinking about next year now and where work is required:

Goalkeepers: Rogers, Sava
I'd look to release both and bring in a new number 1 and promote Kelly to the bench. Rogers is 36 in September and while he can be a good shot stopper he just concedes far too many and makes too many glaring errors in key matches... that knee first thing the other night...

Defenders:
Gannon, Barrett, Gartland, Vemmelund, Massey, Hoare
I'd be happy enough with that for the moment, but if a Boyle-esque player became available? Ryan Delaney at Cork made a massive, massive difference to them this season. But the issues we've had defensively have stemmed from problems in midfield, in my opinion.

Midfield:
O'Donnell, Benson, Shields, Clifford, Poynton
The number 1 problem area in my mind. O'Donnell is crocked and while I'd love to see him stay involved at the club, he needs to replaced by a dominating, tempo setting central midfielder on the pitch. He has been our heartbeat, but the team needs a heart transplant. Clifford has been THE big disappointment and will be released. Happy to keep the others. Would be great to think Poynton is able for the step up.

Attacking Midfield:
Duffy, McEleney, McGrath, Mountney, Connolly
I'd stick with that given the signing of Connolly. Duffy and McGrath will only improve with this season under their belts and a proper pre-season.

Forwards:
McMillan, Kilduff, Stewart, O'Connor
Second big problem area. Could see first three leaving, though hopefully McMillan will stay. Easier said than done, but we need another McMillan who has fewer quiet games. Don't think O'Connor is likely to make the step up yet.

Gavin @ DundalkSport
Ciaran Kilduff is expected to miss Dundalk's trip to Sligo this evening. Word is he could be on his way to a club in America in the coming days. #DundalkSport

McEleney will be gone for free at the end of the season. With only the cup to play for, if we were to get a few grand for him that could go towards another players wages that we would have for a couple of years it would be a no brainer. He'd be badly missed as when he has been in form the whole team seems to play well

I laugh that so many people can't spell McEleney's name.

But the thought we won't have him next season upsets me. Didn't think losing him this early was on the cards.

Hints on Twitter that more than Kilduff on the way.

Might be stealing a march on next season, which would be a very good move in my book.
