The Dublin football legend is set to join up with the Donegal senior footballers, according to a report in the Donegal News.
Nathan Mullins, son of Brian, is set to join with Declan Bonnar’s Tir Conaill men having represented both Dublin and Donegal at u-21 level.
Despite being born and currently living in the north-west, Mullins plays with St Vincents and has been apart of their recent domination of the Dublin SFC.
Mullins won an All-Ireland u-21 title with the Dubs (beating Donegal in the final) before joining with his native county at the grade 12 months later.
Having suffered with injury throughout his career, Mullins will be hoping to forge an inter-county career as the Tir Conaill county look to bounce back from a disappointing 2017 where they were emphatically knocked out of the championship by Galway.
Donegal were last in an All-Ireland final in 2014 and in the following two years reached the last eight in the country so there are plenty of talented footballers in the country. That said, they have been in a period of transition in the last 18 months, and hopes will be high that the addition of Mullins will be a huge boost as Bonner takes charge for 2018.
