Sligo Rovers have announced that defender Kyle Callan-McFadden is to leave the club, with a move to King’s Lynn Town in the offing.
He told Sligo’s website: “During the first lockdown, I got the phone call. I know the manager (Ian Culverhouse), as he was part of the first-team coaching staff at Norwich when I was there.
“We spoke about it as a family and we thought it was right to move back to England. It has been six years since (wife) Ella has been living near her family and friends.
“We had a great life in Ireland but Ella has a job secured in the NHS.”
King’s Lynn have responded, saying: “We are aware that Sligo Rovers have released a story relating to Kyle Callan-McFadden.
“We hope to have the relevant paperwork completed as quickly as possible before he joins up with the Linnets.”
