Derry City are expecting Dean Shiels to complete his move to Brandywell later this week.

City boss Kenny Shiels confirmed recently that his son would be joining and it’s believed the ex-Dundalk man may not be the only new attacking addition to the squad.

The Candy Stripes, who are currently preparing for their first game after the mid-season break when they travel to Shamrock Rovers this Friday, continue to look at strengthening their squad.

Winger Ben Fisk completed his move last weekend but the Brandywell men are still hopeful of adding more new faces to their squad.

Derry, who have lost a host of first team players in the last few weeks, are believed to be interested in signing Sligo Rovers striker Ally Roy and Bray Wanderers' Aaron Greene.

Shiels has been a long time admirer of Greene after the player proved a thorn in Derry’s side on a number of occasions, though he has missed most of this year’s campaign through injury.

Hearts youngster Roy, who's loan deal with Sligo Rovers expires later this week, scored against Derry in February and also netted for Gerard Lyttle’s side in their win over St Patrick’s Athletic only a few weeks ago.
