Five-time All-Ireland winner Bernard Brogan has confirmed that he will be available to Dublin boss Jim Gavin again in 2018.

The former Footballer of the Year was limited to a role off the bench for the capital men during their third successive victorious All-Ireland SFC campaign.

As a result, the 33-year-old did consider his future at inter-county level but was happy to commit to another season after Gavin made it clear that he wanted him to remain in the set-up.

"Throughout the summer I wasn't sure what I'd do," the Oliver Plunketts clubman told the Irish Independent from the Fexco Asian Games in Bangkok.

"I had some good form and bad form and was getting only so much game-time. So I was thinking, 'will I give it another go or is my time gone?' and I was rolling that around in my head.

"I sat down with Jim and said what I felt and where I thought I was at. After I had my say, Jim indicated that he wanted me around and wanted me back and that there was a role for me.

"I have a couple of injuries and, if I get them right, there was no reason not to go again because Jim indicated he still sees a role for me."
