Carroll, 21, who is primarily a left-back but can also play in central midfield, had two separate trial periods with the Terriers and will now join up with the club permanently this summer for pre-season training.

"Jake impressed me a lot when he was here a few weeks ago," Town manager Mark Robins told the club's official website. "He is left-sided, quick, powerful and has a good attitude with an aptitude to learn quickly.

"He will have to adapt to the style of football in England, but he arrives with the challenge of breaking into our first team.

"Ireland is an interesting market for English clubs. A lot of talented Irish players arrive in England at 16 years old, in the same way that we recently recruited the country's Under-16 captain Danny Kane from Cherry Orchard, whereas others are identified after emerging in a League of Ireland team at aged 20 or 21, such as James McClean and Seamus Coleman. Jake comes under the latter of those two routes."

London-born Carroll grew up in Lucan, Ireland and played the majority of his youth football for Home Farm but had a short spell at Belvedere before joining St Patrick's Under-20 side in 2010.

During this time he was capped by the Republic of Ireland schools side whilst studying at university.

Since breaking into the first team he has made more than 50 appearances for the club, which includes Europa League appearances.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.

aha, The Fine? That will really hurt. Thats like me biting someone in my place of work and getting fined 78p. I would round it up to 80p because thats how much a packet of Quavers or a Topic are in the machine. The bans are heavy though, and rightly so.
