Paul Mannion is set to return to Ireland this week to rejoin the Kilmacood Crookes.
The former Dublin hitman was on the losing side of Sunday’s Boston Championship final as Donegal lost 2-11 to 0-10 to Aidan McCanespie.
Crookes start the Dublin SFC defense against Balintia St. John’s at O’Toole Park on Sunday.
And the six-time All-Ireland champion is expected to return to the fold.
Kilmaquad is also still waiting for Shane Walsh’s transfer from Kilkelin Clonburn to be sanctioned by Croke Park.
Walsh sparked major controversy last month when his plans to move to the club were announced after Galway’s 9–0 defeat in their All-Ireland final against Kerry.
Meanwhile, last night the deadline for the club to nominate Donegal’s next manager passed.
Declan Bonner resigned as boss last month.
A three-person selection committee will be appointed to find new bosses for the 2023 campaign.
Former senior coach Maxi Curran, who led the Donegal Women to the All-Ireland semi-finals this summer, could also be a strong contender.
Former Monaghan and Fermanagh boss Malachy O’Rourke could be tempted for the job after the Royals appointed Colm O’Rourke after refusing an approach from Meath last month.
