By Richard Parks
Striker Eoghan Stokes has taken to Twitter to express his delight after agreeing to move from Leeds United to Irish top-flight club Bohemians.
The Dublin-based club announced on their official Twitter account on Thursday that Stokes, 21, had agreed terms to move to Dalymount Park, subject to international clearance.
Stokes subsequently wrote a message on his personal Twitter account to say that he is “looking forward to this new chapter in my career”.

The forward is set to go straight into their first-team squad and make his debut in a big top-flight derby against Shamrock Rovers on Friday night, which is already a sell-out.
Stokes had his deal at Leeds terminated two weeks ago after the January transfer window closed, yet the Bohemians announcement states that he has been signed from the Championship giants as his registration is passed between the two clubs.
The Republic of Ireland Under-21 international made just one senior appearance during his time at Leeds but he was a prolific scorer for their Under-23s after graduating from the youth ranks.
The Irish Sun had reported that the centre-forward had been on trial at Shamrock Rovers and even featured in a friendly match for them last week.
However he has controversially decided to join their Dublin rivals Bohemian ahead of the 2018 Irish Premier Division kicking off this week.
In other Leeds United news, a 27-year-old has insisted he still has a BIG future at the club after reports he will never play for the Yorkshire giants again.
