Exeter City are delighted to announce the signing of defender Dara O’Shea from West Bromwich Albion on a six-month loan deal.
Dara, who joined the Baggies’ academy at under-16 level, spent last season on loan with Hereford gaining a great deal of experience in senior football, helping himself to seven goals as he won the club’s young player of the year award in what was a promotion season for the Bulls.
The 19-year-old has captained the Republic of Ireland at under-19 level and arrives at St James Park to improve manager Matt Taylor’s defensive options or the 2018/19 campaign.
On joining City, the central defender said: “I’m very excited. As soon as I heard that Exeter City were interested I couldn’t wait to come down here and meet the lads.
“I wanted to come and play in the Football League, I think I’m ready for it and I want to show the fans and the lads that I’m ready for it.”
Welcome to St James Park, Dara!
