Dundalk FC have completed the signing of former Wolverhampton Wanderers and Ross County ’keeper Aaron McCarey on a two-year deal.
The Monaghan native has been earning rave reviews for his performances at Warrenpoint Town this season, having been named in the Republic of Ireland senior squad earlier this year.
McCarey, 26, joins the club to challenge Gary Rogers for the number one spot, replacing Gabriel Sava who departed in November. Ross Treacy also remains in Dundalk's stopping department.
The former Monaghan GAA underage player has represented Ireland at every level from U17 to U21, earning a total of 24 caps.
“I am delighted to get the deal done," said McCarey.
"It has been in the making for a while the deal so it is great to get it over the line. It’s an absolute privilege to join the best team in Ireland.
“I am looking forward to joining the best team in Ireland and with the new season coming up it’s going to be very exciting. “
He added: "There will be some changes with Stephen (Kenny) leaving for the international setup. It will be interesting here with a new manager and new players, me being one of them, and I have spoken to some of the players before.
“There are some familiar faces in the squad for me so it will make things easy for me to transition in.
“It was a no brainer for me to come here, I have heard nothing but good things about the Club from everyone and it is like a family. “
