AFL side Geelong Cats have officially confirmed the signing of Mayo star Oisín Mullin as a category B rookie.

It comes after strong speculation last week that the Young Footballer of the Year was set for a move Down Under having been linked with a switch to the AFL for the last two years.

The 21-year-old from Kilmaine has featured in the last two All-Ireland SFC final and was also selected as an All-Star last year.

Geelong announced Mullin’s signing last night which will see him joining Kerry’s Mark O’Connor and Zach Tuohy (Laois) as Irish members of their squad.

“Oisín is a very athletic and talented prospect, and we are thrilled he has chosen to join the Cats as he transitions to AFL,” stated Geelong’s recruiting and list manager Stephen Wells.

“Oisín has already established himself as an elite player in the GAA, and it is a big step to make the move to Australia. We have a strong plan in place around his development and transition to football.”
