DONE DEAL: Runcorn sign former Bayern Munich winger Dale Jennings

Runcorn Town have snapped up former Bayern Munich winger Dale Jennings.

The 25-year-old made headlines as an 18-year-old when the Bundesliga champions signed him from Tranmere Rovers for £500,000 in 2011.

However, he failed to settle in Germany and returned to England to join Barnsley then MK Dons.

"He has lost his way somewhat but I have met with Dale and he is desperate to resurrect his career," manager Chris Herbert told the Runcorn website.

"He is still only 25 years old, and this next five years are going to be his best years in football.

"He wants to prove the doubters wrong and it was very refreshing to see and hear from someone who has been at one of the biggest clubs in the world at Bayern Munich."
