Liverpool and Everton are leading the chase for Cork City central defender Sean McCloughlin this summer, we can exclusively reveal.

The 21-year-old only joined Cork last summer from UCC, but he has quickly established himself as the stand-out young player in the League of Ireland.

We can reveal that the two Merseyside giants are heading the chase for his signature, with Newcastle, Sheffield United, Middlesbrough and Preston also keen.

Preston have embraced the Irish market in the last 12-months and have been looking to steal a march on their rivals, but the interest in McCloughlin is major.

Cork are fully aware that the player could leave and have already moved to sign McCloughlin’s replacement in the shape of former Crystal Palace defender Damien Delaney.
