Blackburn Rovers young Irish midfielder Brad Lyons looks set to depart the club and move to St Mirren in Scotland on loan.
Alan Nixon tweeted: “BLACKBURN. Irish lad Lyons wanted by ST MIRREN on loan. Midfield prospect. Could be a good move for all parties.”
The 21-year-old joined Blackburn Rovers on loan from Northern Irish side Coleraine last season, and the deal was made permanent last January.
The youngster made his debut for Northern Irish side Coleraine in 2014 and he made himself an integral part of the Coleraine midfield under manager Oran Kearney.
Brad Lyons managed to make over 30 appearances last season, which was a remarkable season as it brought them an Irish Cup and a second-place finish in the Premiership, having lost just one game all season. He scored twice in two league appearances for them this season.
Northern Irish side Coleraine manager Oran Kearney believed Brad Lyons progress was “exceptional” as he told BBC Sport: “The progress Brad has made in his four years or so at the club has been exceptional.”
“The timing for us couldn’t have been worse but the thought of standing in his way for something that could be life-changing we would never do.”
“Everyone in the changing room to a man is delighted for him and we look forward to following his progress and we really hope he kicks on.”
