Goalkeeper Peter Boyle has quit the Donegal senior football panel.

According to local reports, he made the decision after their win against Kildare last weekend.

Boyle had lost the number one shirt to former Sligo Rovers and Derry City 'keeper Shaun Patton in recent weeks.

Donegal were due to play Tyrone this weekend, but it was postponed on Thursday due to Storm Emma, along with the rest of the weekend's Allianz League fixtures.

As reported by Highland Radio, Boyle's departure is yet to be confirmed by the Donegal management but it is believed he told bainisteoir Declan Bonner of his decision earlier this week.
