John Mountney is the latest Dundalk player to move on from the club, with the Lilywhites confirming the Mayo man will not be sticking around next season.

Mountney spent nine seasons at Oriel Park, making nearly 300 appearances and leaving with five Premier Division titles, three FAI Cups, and three League Cups. He was also part of two memorable European campaigns that saw the Co Louth  league make it to the group stages of the Europa League.

Mountney's final appearance came against Arsenal at the Aviva Stadium.

Earlier on Monday Dundalk thanked a number of players who have left in the last couple of weeks. Nathan Oduwa, Jimmy Corcoran, Sean Hoare, and Sean Gannon have all departed while Gary Rogers has retired.

"We would like to thank each and every one of them for the part they played in the club's success since 2013 and we wish them all of the very best in the future," the club said in a statement.

It's been a period of significant change at Dundalk. 

Two weeks ago former Northern Ireland midfielder Jim Magilton was appointed their new sporting director, while the Lilywhites recently confirmed that Filippo Giovagnoli will remain as the club's head coach on a permanent basis.

The Italian led them to FAI Cup glory with a 4-2 defeat of Shamrock Rovers after extra-time.
