Declan Bonner is seen as the pole position candidate for the vacant senior football managers post with Cavan.

Armagh man Tony McEntee was the favourite for the job but he has ruled himself out of the running, which has lead to Bonner becoming a front runner.

Speaking in today’s Irish News, Declan said “It’s speculation more than anything else at this stage,”

“I was aware of it but nothing has been done about it. At the minute I’m trying to get the U21s organised for next season so we’ll see what comes around.”

“Number one priority is Donegal at the minute. We’ve taken a group of lads from 16 years of age right through to U21 and next season is their last year at U21 level so that’s probably the priority.”

However, he didn’t rule out the possibility of a move to the Breffni County, saying: “No-one knows what can happen and what’s around the corner.”
