The Cork hurling management have been in contact with Eoin Cadogan regarding a possible return to the side.
Having been a dual player from 2009 to 2012, Cadogan opted to focus solely on football this year. With Aidan Walsh having already announced his intention to play both codes next year, there is now a strong possibility the Douglas star will be back in Jimmy Barry-Murphy’s squad.
Cork selector Kieran Kingston said discussions are ongoing with Cadogan and others.
“The exact position is that we are in the process of picking a new panel for the league,” he said.
“It will be announced when we come back from our team holiday, right now we are meeting with a number of players to discuss whether they might be part of that panel and Eoin is one of those players.
“We have to stress though that nothing is finalised, we are still examining whether or not it is feasible and we will also have to talk to football manager Brian Cuthbert about it.
“It is obviously a big ask to try to play the two and there is no concrete commitment from either side yet.”
Damien Cahalane is another candidate to play hurling and football. While he is recovering from a hip operation, he is also on the management’s radar.
“We are talking to Damien too,” Kingston said. “He would be a good addition to the panel and it’s a similar situation to Eoin in terms of trying to balance the two.
“The bottom line is if there is anybody that we feel can be an asset to us going forward into 2014, we will talk to them. We are back from holiday on January 13 and we’d hope to be able to get the new panel together for the first time the following weekend to give ourselves a month or so before the Limerick game.”
