TIARNAN MULVENNA IS going home to Dundalk.

The Lilywhites confirmed last night that Mulvenna, who won the EA Sports Cup and finished as league runner-up with Louth neighbours Drogheda United last season, will return to the club where it all began.

The 24-year-old came through the Oriel Park youth system and was heralded as one of the club’s brightest young stars when he broke into the senior squad under manager John Gill.

His goals helped Dundalk win promotion back to the Premier Division in 2008 before he moved on and, after brief spells with local side Woodview Celtic and at Shelbourne, crossed the county divide to join Drogheda in 2011.

Mulvenna is Stephen Kenny’s sixth new signing, joining John Dillon, Patrick Hoban, Andy Boyle, Keith Ward and Dane Massey in the 2013 squad, while John Mountney and Eoghan Osborne have both re-signed.

Meanwhile, UCD have confirmed that captain Mick Leahy has agreed a new deal at Belfield.

“Despite some tempting offers, I’ve decided to stay and re-sign with @UCDAFC for next season,” Leahy said on Twitter last night. “Looking forward to a big year!”

No Chelsea move for Drogba, according to reports
