Cork City have announced the loan signing of former England Under 17 international Kyron Stabana ahead of the 2020 League of Ireland Premier Division season.

Stabana makes the move from AFC Wimbledon and will remain with Neale Fenn’s side until the summer.

The defender began his career with Derby County and had loan spells with Boston United and Tamworth before joining The Dons in 2018.

He returned to Tamworth on loan for a period last year and will now get a taste of what the League of Ireland has to offer during his time with The Rebels.

“I am buzzing to be here at Cork City, and I can’t wait to get started,” Stabana said, speaking to the club’s website.

“I hope to play as many games as possible and get the club has high up the league table as possible, where the club belongs.

“I am an attacking right back; I like to get forward as much as possible. I feel I am good in one-on-one situations and I like to get a lot of crosses into the box but be good defensively as well.

“I jumped at the chance to come here and the lads have made me feel very welcome. My first day of training went well, it was a good session this morning. With the friendly games coming up, it is an opportunity for me to show what I can do before the season starts.”

Stabana will get his first opportunity with Cork’s upcoming friendly against Bandon this Saturday (kick-off 2pm).
