Mayo footballer Oisín Mullin has signed for Geelong Cats, the Australian Rules club has confirmed.

The 21-year-old had been linked with a switch to the AFL as an international rookie on a two-year contract and Geelong have announced his impending arrival.

"Oisin is a very athletic and talented prospect, and we are thrilled he has chosen to join the Cats as he transitions to AFL," said Stephen Wells, Geelong's recruiting and list manager.

"Oisin 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."

Mullin was part of the Mayo panels that reached the 2020 and 2021 All-Ireland SFC finals, starting both deciders as James Horan's side lost to Dublin and Tyrone respectively at Croke Park.

He won an All-Star for his part in the 2020 campaign, while also being named Young Player of the Year.

Former Laois footballer Zach Tuohy and Kerry's Mark O'Connor are part of the current squad at Geelong.
