DECLAN McManus has swapped Scotland for Wales as the striker bids farewell to East End Park today (Monday).

A £60,000 fee has been agreed between Dunfermline Athletic and Welsh side The New Saints FC.

Announcing the move, DAFC said: "DAFC confirm that Declan McManus has today joined The New Saints FC, after both clubs agreed suitable terms for the transfer.

"We would like to wish Declan and all of his family well for the future."

It has been confirmed by the Welsh Premier League club that McManus moves for a £60,000 fee and signs a two-year deal.

The club’s head coach, Anthony Limbrick, commenting on the second addition to his squad this season, told the The New Saints website: “We’ve been watching Declan for a while now and are delighted to finally get the deal over the line. 

"We really think he’ll strengthen our forward line, and give us different options at the top of the pitch. More importantly though, he’s a good character who will work hard for the team.”

McManus expressed his delight for the move and told his new club's website: “I’m delighted to be here and really looking forward to the big challenges ahead, both personally and collectively, in Europe and also trying to get the club back to the top of the JD Cymru Premier.

"I came here too with the hope of winning trophies, and helping the club progress on the European stage, and hopefully I can score the goals that can help the club and the team achieve that.

"Once the clubs had agreed a fee, and I had the opportunity to speak with the head coach and chairman, it very quickly became an easy decision for me to sign.

"Their ambition was really impressive and matches my own. I know the club has a great history and I’m looking forward to helping add to that during my time here.”
