Talks positive with young Northern Ireland striker

Talks positive with young Northern Ireland striker

Glenavon manager Gary Hamilton says Leeds United are still in talks with young striker Robbie McDaid about a move to Elland Road.

Hamilton says the club and player are in talks with Leeds at the moment about a deal to bring McDaid to Elland Road and he is confident of a positive outcome.

Speaking in the Lurgan Mail , Hamilton said, "They`re in talks at the minute so we`ll have to wait and see if everyone agrees. The two clubs have to agree before anything can happen. Robbie has to agree with the club involved as well.

"We don`t see any problems from our side. What we have requested has to be agreed and Robbie has to agree his terms. There are still a couple of things that have to happen.

"For Robbie`s sake, we hope they do but recently I had a player sign on a piece of paper and the deal still didn`t go through.

"That`s why you don`t talk too much about these things because it`s the player we are protecting until it all happens.

"Yes, the progress is very positive and hopefully it will be done soon, but Leeds are in the middle of a takeover and you never know what way things go."


The Northern Ireland under-18 international has been training with Leeds this week and he scored twice in the under-17s 4-1 win against Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday.

The 17-year-old was also on target twice for Glenavon last weekend as they beat near neighbours Portadown and his form has earned him a call-up this week for the Northern Ireland under-19 side for their friendly with Switzerland in March.

He has made 12 appearances for Glenavon since making his first team debut last season and he has netted three times.
