Midfielder Conor McCormack delighted to have signed a two year deal with Derry City.

The 29-year-old, who has signed a two year deal with the Candy Stripes, hopes to complete his set of winning a trophy with every League of Ireland club he has played during his second stint on Foyleside.

McCormack initially signed for the Brandywell men in July 2015 and spent a season and a half before moving to Cork City in November 2016.

He has spent the last three seasons at Turners Cross and won the league and FAI Cup double in 2017, he also won the FAI Cup with St Patrick's Athletic, when the Dubliners defeated Derry in the 2014 final, and McCormack played his part in Michael O'Neill's Premier Division title winning Shamrock Rovers squad in 2011, now he wants to win some silverware in his second spell at the Brandywell.

"All the League of Ireland clubs I have been at, I have won silverware bar Derry, they are the only club that I haven't won something with, so I want to come back and win something with them," he explained.

"It would be great if every club I was at in the League of Ireland I had won something.

"We had a really good bit of success down in Cork and if I can bring my bit of experience and the winning mentality, which I had down there, up to Derry, hopefully we can go to that next step.

"It's something when I joined Derry the first time that I wanted to do. I think they were second from bottom and then within a year and a half I think we were third, had two semi-finals under Kenny Shiels and we were unfortunate not to win anything then.

"I went to Cork and I was fortunate to win a couple of trophies there, but in the back of my mind I was like 'I want to go back and win something with Derry City,' so I'm really happy that I have made that decision and can't wait to get going."
