Derry City can confirm that Michael McCrudden has joined the club from Institute FC.
The player had agreed to join the club during the summer, having signed a pre-contract agreement in recent weeks. However following discussions between the two clubs, an agreement has been reached to allow Michael to move to the Candystripes immediately.
The boards at both clubs would like to acknowledge that this has been a complicated and protracted process.
Michael will now join up with Derry City and will be available for the 2019 SSE Airtricity Premier Division campaign
