He is set to sign for the Dublin City Football Club, with a fee set to be in the region of €50 million.
The Irish Football Association (IFA) is hoping the move will bring stability to the club and a fresh start for Steele, who was a late signing for the Cork City team.
He said he had enjoyed playing for his new club and that the new contract with the Dublin club would give him “a lot of freedom”.
Steele made his international debut for the Ireland Under-21s against Russia in January and has scored five goals in six appearances for Ireland.

The striker is keen to secure a new deal with Dublin City and said he was “really excited” to sign.
“I’m really excited about this new opportunity and the opportunity to help this football club, which is already in such good shape,” he said.
Steele scored his first senior goal for Ireland at Euro 2020 in April 2019 and he scored his second goal in the tournament’s final qualifier against England in September 2020.”
It’s the most exciting time in my career and it will be a great challenge to continue playing at the highest level.”
