DERRY City defender Caoimhín Bonner looks set to follow in the footsteps of former Candystripe Conor Sammon and join County Londonderry supremo Kenny Shiels’ charges Kilmarnock.
Bonner was a trialist with the Killies last year and it’s understood he may be set to sign a contract with the Scottish Premier League (SPL) side.
The out-of-contract defender - a fixture of Derry City’s reserves and under age sides over recent seasons - is on the verge of signing for the Killies.
Bonner played an U20 game against the Scottish side last summer and was subsequently invited to Rugby Park for a trial in November.
Shiels meanwhile will be familiar with Bonner from his time as an Irish Football Association (IFA) youth coach in the North West.
