Dungannon Swifts sign Daniel Hughes from Cliftonville

Dungannon Swifts have signed Daniel Hughes from Cliftonville.

The striker (25) has agreed a two and a half year deal with the Co Tyrone club.

The Swifts have been struggling for goals - the 3-0 defeat at Cliftonville at the weekend was the seventh time in eight league games that Rodney McAree's side have failed to score.

Hughes had previously been on the books of Warrenpoint Town, before moving to Cliftonville, and believes he can kick-start his career at Dungannon.

The striker said: "What was a big attraction to me was the way Rodney (McAree) sets up his team and how they want to play. I felt this would really suit my style of play and that I would be a good match.

“One of my main reasons for making the move to Stangmore was for the reason every player wants – to get game time.

"I wasn’t getting enough of that at Cliftonville and Rodney offered me the opportunity to play for his team and get a lot more game time."

Dungannon boss McAree said: "We have been actively looking for a striker and I am delighted as I know we have got the best possible player to come in to fill this position.

"He is a goalscorer and the kind of player we really have been missing."
