FORMER LEAGUE OF Ireland striker Dean Ebbe has been rewarded for a prolific run of form in the Leinster Senior League after being recruited by Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

The 22-year-old, who has been lining out for Bluebell United this season, caught the eye of Inverness manager Richie Foran and has earned a move to the Scottish Premiership.

Ebbe enjoyed spells with Shamrock Rovers, Longford Town, Athlone Town and Cabinteely in the League of Ireland but had been plying his trade for Collinstown and Bluebell in recent years.

Inverness boss Foran — a former Ireland U21 international — took over the reins at the Caledonian Stadium at the start of the current campaign and is now looking to add reinforcements to his squad in January.

His side are currently bottom of the Scottish top-flight with just three wins from their opening 21 games.

Cork winger Aaron Doran and Ireland underage international Jake Mulraney are both already on the books at the club.
