DEAN Shiels is planning a mass clear-out at Dungannon Swifts.

Shiels insisted that simply wasn’t good enough and he’s now set to ring the changes. A few weeks into the job Shiels said Swifts had too many players on their books and he now intends to get rid of the dead wood as he begins to rebuild.
