Eoghan Stokes has joined his second new side since leaving Leeds United in February 2018 – and it is likely to cause some drama.
The Leeds academy product opted to leave Elland Road a year ago. The 22-year-old joined Irish Premier League side Bohemians, despite making his Leeds debut in August 2017.
Though he was first choice and given plenty of game time, it was a rather indifferent spell. Indeed, Stokes only scored five goals in 33 games for the top-tier outfit.
Bohemians finished in sixth place, some way off European qualification but miles above the drop. Now, he has joined Irish Premier League rivals Derry City – and posted on Twitter in his new strip.

Derry finished six points below Bohemians in eighth, only one place above the drop – but 15 points above ninth. His first game comes against University College Dublin, with the IPL season kicking off on February 15.
The former Leeds ace will be hoping to fire Derry into the top four of the division, leaving Bohemians behind.
