NIGERIAN-BORN DUNDALK STRIKER Marco Tagbajumi has announced that he is leaving the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division outfit.

The 30-year-old striker signed for the Lilywhites on a one-year contract in February, but leaves Oriel Park after less than months.

Tagbajumi scored three goals in the 20 games he played for the club, and Dundalk FC confirmed the news shortly after the player himself tweeted.

“Everyone at Dundalk Football Club wish Marco well in his future career and wish to put on record our thanks to him for all is efforts during his time at the club,” they added in a statement.

Well-travelled Tagbajumi adds his experience on Irish soil to that he gained playing in Portugal, Cyprus, Thailand and Norway over the last decade.
