Leroy Rosenior is set to sign former Plymouth Argyle midfielder Osvaldo Lopes from Cork City.

Lopes has been training with United for some time now, and has impressed the United Head Coach with his ability during this time. Unfortunatley United had to wait for the International transfer window to open in January and have now applied for International clearance to sign the player.

The player is currently a free agent following his spell with Eircom League runners-up Cork City, where he found it difficult to settle and the standard of football not to his liking. Lopes has also played for Montpellier.
