He was deemed surplus to requirements by new Inverness Caledonian Thistle manager John Roberstons, but Dean Ebbe may yet play in Scottish football next season.
The former Bluebell United and Collinstown star is currently on trail at Dunfermline and is hoping to secure a contract at the Scottish club.
The Clondalkin man signed for Inverness Caledonian Thistle from Bluebell United in the Winter window and seemed to impress most at the club.
The move was made with the future in mind and Ebbe went into the under 20 set up where he was impressing enough for some fans to call for him to be handed a chance in a struggling first team.
Ebbe did manage to play for the first team and lived a boyhood dream by gracing Celtic Park when he came on against Celtic in the cup.
However, the striker wasn’t used as ICT eventually went down, an occurrence that most felt would greatly increase his first team chances, but the man that signed him, fellow Dub Ritchie Foran was sacked as manager and John Robertson returned to the hot seat.
The new coach was keen to change things up and Ebbe wasn’t in his plans. As a result the striker was released by the club and after a period training with League Of Ireland sides is now back in Scotland looking to impress Dunfermline boss Allan Johnston.
