Rory Kavanagh has returned to the Donegal football panel 12 months after announcing his inter-county retirement.

The St Eunan's man, who released his autobiography Winning last year, had previously hinted that a return to action was a possibility.

The news will be a big boost for manager Rory Gallagher, with the 2012 All-Ireland winner offering added competition around the middle of the pitch.

Kavanagh has been in training and after speaking with the player, Donegal Sports Hub reports that he will return to training with the senior team later this week. He is expected to return to action for the opening National League game against Down on January 30th.

Kavanagh won three Ulster titles and the 2012 All-Ireland under Jim McGuinness
