Dundee’s Nicky Low will be returning to Dens after his loan spell with Derry City came to an end.
The 25-year-old joined the Dark Blues from Aberdeen in the summer of 2015 but his time in the City of Discovery has been hampered by illness and injury.
He was farmed out to the Northern Irish side at the end of January by former Dundee boss Paul Hartley in a bid to get him regular game time in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division.
Low quickly made an impact for the Candystripes, becoming a key player for Kenny Shiels’ side.
The manager persuaded Dundee to extend Low’s initial loan past the end of June and he made no secret of his desire to keep the player on a permanent basis however with the Northern Irish season at an end, Low is now set to return to his parent club.
The midfielder faces stiff competition to force his way into current Dark Blues boss Neil McCann’s side but he will return in confident frame of mind after being named Derry City’s Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year.
Low signed off from his time with the Candystripes with a message on social media saying: “Now the season has finished and it’s time to move back home, I would like to thank Kenny and the rest of the staff for giving me the chance to play every week after injuries.
“I wish you all good luck in the future.”
