I think McEleney will take the position occupied by Finn last season. Benson and O'Donnell are likely to be the other central midfielders. Shields will probably play in games where it is a midfield battle, like against Cork.

I see Duffy on the left with Mountney and McCourt (if he signs on the right). McCourt will probably come in in a lot of games when space opens up.

McGrath, Clifford, and Kinsella are probably considered as back up. Kenny probably looks on McGrath the same way he looked at Benson last year. Introduce him slowly while he gets his physical conditioning up to our level.

The thing I really admire about Kenny is that he thinks beyond one season. Benson was signed with this season in mind.

Settling in shouldn't be a problem for Duffy

I think Duffy will be an auto starter on the left wing, and for me its O'Donnell & McEleney in the middle, this leaves two spots up for grabs, right side of MF then whoever plays behind the striker. He might play McEleney no 10, but I think he will slot him in beside O'Donnell, this leaves no space for Shields and that's tough, but we will should 50+ games this season, there will be plenty of games for the whole squad.

In defence, I'm beginning to think he will go with Barrett to partner Gartland, but Hoare will run him close, could be vice versa though.

Any word on whether a fee was paid for Michael Duffy?

An Irish Independent report suggested a transfer fee as being "in the region of £10,000".

Neither the club or Celtic gave any mention - as far as I'm aware - to a transfer fee. We are in a unique position within the league where we can "do business" where it's appropriate. My feelings are that this should remain confidential to avoid value for money comparisons or, worse still, other clubs and players overvalueing themselves. (Bray being prime example)

#DundalkFC played a training match against @cfreddis in Salou today. 6-0 win - goals from Kilduff (2), Hoare, Duffy, Mountney & McEleney.

Gary Rogers tweeted that he played though didn't say whether he played the full 90.

A real cracker of a goal too. He was excellent for his 60 minutes on the pitch. Looks like a man out to prove a point.
