John Kavanagh wont return to Finn Park

Waterford FC have announced that John Kavanagh has joined the club.

It will be the defender's second spell at Waterford having played with them for the first half of last season.

He had spent this season on loan at Finn Harps from Cork City but returned to his parent club at the end of June.

Harps boss Ollie Horgan had indicated that he hoped to get Kavanagh back at Finn Park for the rest of this campaign but the player's move to Waterford means that won't now happen.

Kavanagh could play his first game back with Waterford this Friday night when they host Harps at the RSC.
