The 19-year-old joins Martin Russell's side from Cork City, where he came through the ranks, making a breakthrough in 2016.

Ogbene was a key player for City's Under-19 team over the course of the past two seasons and his performances saw him work his way into John Caulfield's plans.

He made eight league appearances for the Leesiders in 2016, scoring three goals, and also featured in the final of the FAI Cup as Cork defeated Dundalk to lift the trophy.

The winger, who can also play as a striker, earned further recognition for his displays in the Uefa Youth League last season, impressing against HJK Helsinki and AS Roma.

Ogbene joins Brendan Clarke, Dean Clarke, David O'Connor and Ian Turner as a new face at Markets Field in 2017.
