KEITH LONG HAS strengthened his Bohemians squad ahead of the start of the 2020 League of Ireland season by signing Callum Thompson on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Thompson, who has been on the books of the English Premier League club since 2017, will stay with Bohs until July.
A product of St Joseph’s Boys, the 18-year-old winger has made 10 appearances for the Wolves U23 side this season.
“He’s new to the league and to senior football but is a very talented young player and an exciting prospect,” Long said of his newest recruit, who helped the Republic of Ireland U18s to wins over Belgium and Netherlands in November 2018.
“We once again will have a lot of fixtures in the first few months of the season, so it is important that we need a strong squad with strength in depth across all positions.
“It’s going to be a squad game and we’ll need players of quality ready to come in and play. We’re looking forward to working with Callum.”
