Ross County are on the verge of signing striker Michael O’Connor from Irish club Waterford United.
The League of Ireland Premier Division outfit have released a statement confirming O’Connor has left the club to join the Staggies.
County say no deal has been completed as yet however, with the 22-year-old still to undergo a medical at Victoria Park.
Should Staggies manager Stuart Kettlewell complete a deal to bring O’Connor to the club he will replace the attacking void left by Lee Erwin, who joined Premiership rivals St Mirren earlier this month.
O’Connor, who has previously been capped for the Republic of Ireland’s under-19s side, has spent the last 12 months with Waterford, having previously had stints with Dundalk, Shamrock Rovers and Northern Irish side Linfield.
He netted five times in 16 competitive appearances last season, including a goal in a 3-2 Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup defeat away to Stenhousemuir in October.
His final outing for Waterford came in Monday’s 6-1 defeat to league leaders Shamrock Rovers, in which he netted a consolation goal for the fourth-placed Blues.
In a statement, Waterford said: “Striker Michael O’Connor has left the club to join Scottish Premiership outfit Ross County.
“Michael first joined the club in 2019, making 24 appearances for the Blues. Waterford FC would like to thank Michael for his service and wish him all the best for the future.”
