Daniel Hughes has ended speculation over his future by agreeing a new two-year deal with Warrenpoint Town.

Hughes – who was being tracked by a number of clubs – has pledged his long-term future to the Milltown side.

Linfield, Glentoran and Glenavon were all believed to be interested in the striker – who scored 19 goals last season – with League of Ireland champions Dundalk also monitoring the 23-year-old.

Hughes also had a trial at Sky Bet Championship club Bolton earlier this year.

Warrenpoint boss Barry Gray said: “Daniel has agreed a new two-year deal with is fantastic for the club.

“He is a very important player for us, and there was obvious interest from other clubs.

“It was a big ask for Warrenpoint to keep Daniel at Milltown, but he was happy with what we had to offer and he is staying.

“Hopefully we can build on this and attract a few new faces to the club this summer and progress next season in the Premiership.”

Warrenpoint have also tied down new deals for Stephen Hughes and Dermot McVeigh.

“The three lads are important for the club. It gives us a great base for next season,” Gray added.
