Former Tyrone star Conor McKenna has returned to Australia to link up with AFL side Essendon Bombers once more.

Home-sickness and family-related issues saw McKenna returning home to Eglish last month which led to speculation that he could make his stay permanent and line-out with the Red Hands this season.

However, the Bombers tweeted a picture early this morning of the 23-year-old back training with them ahead of their season opener against Fremantle later this month.
