SHAMROCK ROVERS HAVE announced the signing of 21-year-old Cameron King until the end of the season.

The midfielder joins the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division club having watched from the stands as the Hoops beat Glenville in the FAI Cup first round on Friday night.

English-born King, who is a Scotland U21 international, joined Norwich City at the age of eight and went on to win the 2013 FA Youth Cup with the Canaries. He left the Championship club in the summer of 2016 and joined hometown club Thetford Town.

“I was made aware of Cameron about six weeks ago and advised that I should take a serious look at him,” Bradley told the club.

“Sometimes you get players in and they’re not what people say they are. Cameron was and he’s definitely going to be an attacking threat for us. We got him initially for just two or three days and straight away we liked what we saw.

He’s very direct, very clever on the ball. He can play any attacking position, right, left or as a 10. We have him until the end of the season so hopefully he can show that quality.

“He has good character, he’s hungry to get his career back on track and hopefully this is the place for him. I see him being a good player for us between now and the end of the season and making a real impact.”
