"I've met with Stephen and he's indicated he's very keen to stay involved," Farrell explained.

Cluxton is currently injured and Farrell said he was not expecting him back until "towards the end of March", meaning the Parnell's goalkeeper would miss most, if not all, of Dublin's 2020 National League campaign.

"A lot of you will be aware that he's just after going through some surgery on his shoulder, so that's going to take time to recover," said Farrell, who admitted that Cluxton had: "more to get done than he originally thought... But he's very keen and intent on staying involved and staking a claim."
