Derry player Chrissy McKaigue has been released by AFL side Sydney Swans.

McKaigue has been delisted by the Harbour City club after his two-year rookie contract expired and is expected to return to the Derry fold next year.

The player returned home at the end of the AFL season.

McKaigue is currently preparing to represent Ireland in the forthcoming International Rules games against Australia after being named in Anthony Tohill's panel for the two-game series.
