Dundee’s Nicky Low is set to rejoin Irish side Derry City on a six-month loan deal.
The 26-year-old’s contract with the Dark Blues runs out in June, meaning in all likelihood he will not be returning to play at Dens.
The midfielder became a fans’ favourite for Kenny Shiels’ side last season and although the loan deal has yet to be formally completed, Low linked up with his City team-mates yesterday morning ahead of the club’s four-day pre-season trip to Dublin.
He said: “It’s good to be back.
“We’ve been in talks for a few weeks now so I’m just glad to get it done this week.
“I had a few offers after having a decent season last year and I just took my time to go over them and concentrated on what was best for me.
“When I left Aberdeen a few years back to go to Dundee, it didn’t work out with injuries and I was playing out of position.
“I came to Derry where I enjoyed my time and played regularly. The fans seem to like me too.
“I said to my agent when he was talking to clubs to stop and let’s get a deal with Derry done again because I knew Kenny was interested.
“I’m settled here and while there’s a few new signings I need to get to know, I know most of the lads and the people working at the club and I know the league.
“This year I feel there’s more to come.”
