Shamrock Rovers midfielder Aaron Bolger joins Cardiff City on loan

Good luck to him.

Aaron Bolger has joined Premier League team Cardiff City on loan from Shamrock Rovers.

The midfielder remains under contract with Rovers and no time-frame has been put on the deal.

The Dublin side announced Bolger’s move on Monday afternoon.

The 19-year-old was linked with a move to Preston North End in the English Championship at the end of 2018.

Although highly-rated by Shamrock Rovers manager Stephen Bradley, it is possible that Bolger may have had his playing-time limited after the club signed Jack Byrne from Kilmarnock in the off-season.

Bolger joined Rovers from schoolboy side St Joseph’s Boys in 2016 and has been involved with the first-team over the last three seasons.

He has also represented the Republic of Ireland at underage level. Bolger will, most likely, play for Cardiff’s Under-23 team.
