Donaghy poised for Reds return

Ciaran Donaghy is closing in on a switch to Cliftonville

Donegal Celtic's Ciaran Donaghy is set to leave the west Belfast club and return to Cliftonville.

Donaghy, who can play in defence or midfield, has agreed terms with the Solitude club.

"He's versatile and with holding midfielder Barry Johhnston out injured he would be a quality replacement," said Reds manager Eddie Patterson.

A desire to play in Europe and the Setanta Cup were Donaghy's main reasons for the move, according to DC.

Cliftonville will compete in the IFA Premiership next season while Donegal Celtic failed to gain a place in the new 12-team league.

The former Northern Ireland U18 international has also played for Crusaders and Ballymena United.

Donaghy, son of former N Ireland defender Mal, left the Crues to join Cliftonville in 2001.
