Derry City have signed midfielder Sean Houston from Bray Wanderers on a one-year contract.
The 23-year-old from Letterkenny in County Donegal has also previously played with Finn Harps and UCD in the League of Ireland.
Meanwhile, Candystripes midfielder Barry McNamee is currently on trial with Nottingham Forest.
Recently, left-winger Stephen McLaughlin had a one week training stint at the City Ground.
The capture of Houston is manager Declan Devine's second signing of the close season.
Winger Paddy Kavanagh joined the Brandywell club from Shelbourne last month, also on a one-year deal.
Derry finished fifth in this season's Airtricity League but they ended their campaign on a high note by beating St Patrick's Athletic in an exciting FAI Cup final.
