The Haitian striker will be playing Premier Division football next year.
Athlone Town will be fighting for promotion from the League of Ireland First Division next year without their top scorer from this year.
Drogheda United have confirmed they've signed Frantz Pierrot subject to a work permit approval.
The Haitian striker hit 22 goals for the midlanders in 2023, a number of which were goals of remarkable quality.
Freelance Athlone Town reporter, John Dingle, tells Midlands 103's David Hollywood there's a long list of reasons Town will miss Pierrot:

For many Athlone fans, he'll be remembered for the goals and smiles, but mostly goals like the one he scored on a wet and windy night in Longford.
