Dundalk have re-signed defender Sean Gannon ahead of the 2017 League of Ireland season.

The news comes after Dane Massey also committed his future to the League of Ireland champions for the 2017 season.

Speaking to the club's official website Gannon said: “I am absolutely delighted to have re-signed for the club. I am coming back to an unbelievable squad which is what I want and where I want to be.

“We have a new challenge now and that is to go one better than we did this year. The European run in the Europa League Group Stages was amazing and I am happy to be back and play with these players again.

“For the club, for the players and for the supporters it is brilliant to be a part of the European nights and to have an extended run this year by getting to the groups it is what we all strive to do and improve. 

“We want to do what we did last year again. We want to compete in the Champions League. It was such a history making year. We had a taste of how things are at that level and we want to go for it again. We want to have more of the nights that we had," he added.
