DFC | Kenny still hoping that McMillan will stay at Dundalk FC

St Johnstone lead the chase for 28-year-old’s signature




Stephen Kenny is still hoping that David McMillan will remain at Dundalk next season despite heavy interest from Scottish outfit St Johnstone.

but Kenny said that as far as he was aware, no deal was in place to take the 28-year-old to Perth.

“David is in Sri Lanka and is due back this week,” he told Dundalk Sport. “I’ve had a bit of contact with him through WhatsApp but we’ll just have to wait and see.

“If he has agreed to leave then it’s not something I’m aware of because he assured me he would speak to me again and come back to me before he made any decision.”

Patrick McEleney held talks with Blackburn Rovers last week after a proposed move to Doncaster Rovers fell through. Dundalk have offered the Derryman a three-year contract and Kenny is hoping to have a clearer indication of where he stands in the coming days.

‘Wait and see’ also applies to Robbie Benson and John Mountney. Benson has offers from across the water while Kenny spoke to Mountney last Thursday and will do so again when the midfielder returns from holiday in the USA in early December.

He will do likewise with Georgie Poynton. The 20-year-old enjoyed a successful loan spell at Bohemians this year but Kenny is intent on having him involved at Dundalk next season.

Regarding incomings, Kenny was tightlipped about the arrival of Ronan Murray from Galway, stating that ‘nothing had been signed yet’ while Derry City’s Aaron McEneff continues to be heavily linked with a move to Oriel Park despite having one-year left on his contract.
