More than 100 players with League of Ireland clubs are currently unemployed, according to union figures.

The Professional Footballers' Association of Ireland has published a list of players who are out of contract and seeking new clubs.

The list of 109 players includes former Republic of Ireland striker Glen Crowe of Bohemians and ex-Linfield star Paul McAreavey, who was with Dundalk.

Many Irish clubs have huge debts and are struggling to survive.

Division One club Kildare County was forced to fold, and Derry City recently went into administration.
