After many years of players going in the wrong direction (southeast) it appears that the trend has shifted. Last year Grant Munro and Russell Duncan decided to swap the big city hustle and bustle of Inverness for the more sedate pace of Dingwall. Earlier in this off-season Inverness Caledonian Thistle F.C. defender Ross Tokely- he of 500+ matches for the club- joined Ross County F.C. and it now appears that I.C.T.F.C. winger Jonny Hayes is in the process of hammering out a deal with the Staggies.
Hayes took to Twitter today to announce that, while the deal hasn’t been finalized yet, he’s anxious for that to happen. So, his signing with Ross County may not be “fact” yet, but it’s a lot more than “rumor” at this point. If he does sign the Staggies will be up to 22 players, still two short of Derek Adams’ expressed desire to start the club’s first SPL season with a roster of 22 senior players.
The season begins in less than 46 days…I’m not going to make it!!!
