Derry City sign Israeli defender Alon Netzer

Derry City have completed the signing of Alon Netzer ahead of the 2017 League of Ireland season.

The 23-year-old, who hails from Israel, joins the Candystripes from Romanian club Targu Mures and is looking forward to helping Kenny Shiels’ team build on the third-place finish they achieved in 2016.

“My target is to help the team move forward towards the top of the league,” Netzer told Drive 105‘s ‘Match Night Live’ programme.

“I know this is a top club in Ireland with great facilities and great coaches.

“Right now I am focused on getting into the best shape I can be and helping the team win every match.”

Netzer is expected to represent Shiels’ last foray into the transfer market ahead of the new campaign, following the acquisition of Mark Timlin, Nicky Low, Eric Grimes, Mikhail Kennedy as a new face at the club in 2017.
