Last updated : 02 January 2018 By CNS Sport

Darragh Leahy, who cancelled his contract with Coventry City, has returned to his native Republic Of Ireland.

Leahy joined City as a sixteen year left back, and played for City U18's and City U23's as well as internationally.

He featured for City in pre-season but with Chris Stokes, Ryan Haynes and Chris Camwell ahead of him, further first team appearances for the League Two side were going to be limited,

Leahy has returned to Dublin and joined Irish League side Bohemian, who start their pre-season campaign later this month and speaking about him, Bohs  manager Keith Long said: “Darragh started pre-season with the lads the other day and I am looking forward to working with him.

“It’s a big adjustment to senior football but he has a good pedigree and has had a good schooling with St Kevin’s.

“Left-back was a position where we needed to strengthen and we’ve had an agreement in principle with him for a few weeks now.

“He’s a left-back but is comfortable playing at centre-back too if needs be.”
