Eamon McGee is back in the Donegal football panel after his suspension for a breach of discipline last month.

"We dealt with the matter internally and I'm gald to have him back," said county boss Brian McIver.

Kevin Cassidy was also suspended from the squad but he will not be returning after accepting an invitation to play club football in the United States.

McIver also hopes to persuade Brendan Devenney to make a comeback following his decision to quit last year.

"Brendan is out of the country at the moment but I will be speaking to him before the weekend and the door is open for him," added McIver.

Meanwhile, Glenswilly forward Colin Kelly has been added to the panel while Kilcar's Noel Hegarty and Anthony Kelly of Malin have been drafted in for two challenge matches this weekend.

On Friday evening Cassidy informed Gweedore club officials that he would be travelling to the US with Boston understood to be his likely destination.

Cassidy is currently having a house built in Donegal and this is believed to have played a part in his decision to accept the US offer.

Even if he does travel to America, he could still be available for the latter part of the club championship in Donegal.

"Kevin's a very big loss, we've spoken with him in the last week but he appears to have made up his mind," said McIver.
