Saints Prepare Gamble Swoop

  • Tue, Jul 01, 2008 @ 10:56

St Patrick’s Athletic manager Johnny McDonnell will attempt to bolster his side’s eircom League of Ireland title challenge by signing Ireland international Joe Gamble from Premier Division rivals Cork City.

The eircom League’s transfer window opens on Tuesday (July 1st) and the future of Gamble is the dominant theme as domestic clubs bid to strengthen their squads.

The former Reading man has become arguably the best midfielder in the League since moving to Turners Cross in 2004.

Gamble was rewarded for his form with a call-up to the Republic of Ireland senior squad last year, and he went on to win full caps against Bolivia and Ecuador in the United States.
