We hope this is true 👀

A League of Ireland footballer looks set to leave the pitch behind him for the bright lights of the Love Island villa.

ITV's most popular reality dating show returned to our screens on Monday night, with Maya Jama introducing us to 10 hot singletons looking for love (and more Instagram followers, let's be real).

But as the series format goes, new additions (or bombshells as they're called) will filter in over the next 8 weeks.

We already have an Irish contestant in the original line-up representing us in the villa. Real estate agent Catherine is from Dublin and is already making an impression among her fellow Islanders.

However a League of Ireland star is reportedly set to enter the Majorcan villa in the next few days.

We don't know who it is though!

Under ITV guidelines, the identities of the bombshells are kept strictly under wraps until the day they appear on the show.

According to reports, the player is in his early 20s and isn't a prominent starter in any of the league's 10 teams.

The club that he plays for hasn't made statement yet, but it's said that his teammates know what's happening (is this reminding anyone else of Ted Lasso?)

The Love Island villa has seen a lot of footballers over the years! Already in this series we have Tyrique who currently plays at a semi-pro level for Lewes FC.

Love Island continues tonight on Virgin Media Two and Virgin Media Player at 9pm 🏝

Tune in to World Wide Reb, weekday mornings at 8.10am on 98FM's Big Breakfast for all the latest entertainment news 🎬
