Conor McMenamin would be a worthy investment at £250k, says Gary Smyth

Leyton Orient, Peterborough United, Northampton Town and Stevenage are keen on Glentoran winger Conor McMenamin, according to Football Insider

The third tier quartet are all said to be interested in luring the Northern Ireland international over to England ahead of the next campaign. He has been with his current club since 2021 having also played for Linfield, Warrenpoint and Cliftonville in the past.

Glentoran legend Gary Smyth believes Conor McMenamin needs to secure his dream cross-channel move this summer.

The Northern Ireland winger, who is contracted to the Glens until the end of next season, has spoken about his desire to play at a higher level amid interest from across the water and the Belfast Telegraph revealed last week that English League Two side Gillingham consider him a potential transfer target.

Stockport County and Scottish sides, as well as some clubs from abroad, have also been monitoring his progress.

Former Glens boss Smyth, a multiple League and Irish Cup winner with the club while making 364 appearances, feels the former Cliftonville ace, who turns 28 in August, can still deliver for a club prepared to show faith in him.

“I think he needs to move this summer,” said former Ulster Footballer of the Year winner Smyth. “He has at least five good years in him and someone just needs to take a chance on him as he is a great player who will create and score goals.

“He has proved himself as a top player in our League and also at international level.
