Diarmuid Connolly is reportedly set to sign with Donegal Boston this week according to the Inishowen Independent.

The Donegal based newspaper are reporting that after talks with a number of clubs in America over the last number of weeks, Connolly has decided to sign with the Boston club.

Should the cross Atlantic transfer go ahead, Connolly will not be permitted to line out for Dublin in the remainder of the championship but he would be allowed to return to Championship action for St.Vincent’s when club hurling and football resumes in September.

Connolly has been a topic of discussion since early April when it was widely reported that the Vincent’s man had become disenchated with the game.

The 31-year old has only featured for the county once this year in their Division 1 win over Mayo in Castlebar in February when he came on as a substitute for Ciarán Kilkenny.

Connolly is also set to be joined by Carlow’s Brendan Murphy, Corofin’s Liam Silke and Eoin McHugh of Donegal at his new club this week.
