City have secured the signature of exciting young forward Dylan Duffy, who joins on a permanent transfer from League of Ireland side UCD.
The 20-year-old chose the Imps ahead of a host of clubs in the Sky Bet Championship and League One.
Imps director of football Jez George said “Firstly, I would like to thank UCD for the way in which they have worked with us to provide Dylan with this opportunity. We really respect how they provide a platform for talented young footballers in Ireland to combine education with football at their highest level domestically.
“Their manager Andy Myler did a fantastic job in keeping their team in the Premier Division last season, balancing what is best for each individual with being competitive in the league. Dylan’s progress is testament to that.
“Dylan is a talented young player, with exciting attacking attributes and potential, who will excite our fans once he has transitioned into full-time training, as he makes the huge step up into League One. We will give him time to do that, and look forward to the impact that he can make for us in the future.”
