High-rated striker Ronan Kowloon is getting closer to the move to St. Patrick’s Athletico.
The 24-year-old is in demand after a remarkable season on the showgrounds, where he was the team’s leading scorer, missing even a league game throughout the campaign. Although Rovers was interested in retaining the Limerick native, he expressed a desire to move forward.
“I would like to thank Sligo Rovers for the past 2 years, from the gaffers, staff, players and fans who disbelieved me from day one. It was not an easy decision to give up, but I think it’s time for me to move on to a new challenge,” he said on Twitter.
Pats, who scored just 14 goals in 18 league games last season, the third-lowest in the Premier Division and two goals from their joint top scorers, wants to add to their options and sign a contract with manager Stephen O’Donnell Coglan.
He moved to Huddersfield Town in 2014 after making great strides with his native club Limerick, but was unable to create the first team in England, and before leaving for Sligo he was involved with Bray Wanderers and Cork City.
