Rory Kavanagh is poised to come out of retirement and make a return to the Donegal football squad.

Kavanagh is expected to be added to the squad in the coming days after a winter of speculation about an apparent u-turn on his decision to retire after the 2014 All-Ireland final defeat to Kerry.

It will be a welcome boost for Donegal ahead of their forthcoming Division 1 National League campaign if the 33-year-old can get back up to speed and he will undoubtedly provide options for the Donegal management.

Kavanagh's fitness has always been good and his club form with St Eunan's during last year's Donegal championship brought him sharply back into focus.

Ahead of the new season, Down's Benny Coulter has reversed a decision to retire that he made after 2014, while Cavan's Seanie Johnston's inter-county exile ended with his return to his native county.

Kavanagh penned a well received autobiography 'Winning' during his retirement.
