Lee Keegan believes the vast majority of inter-county players want the GAA to make a call, sooner rather than later, on whether there will be a championship in 2020.

The 2016 Footballer of the Year has spent the past decade striving, in vain, to push Mayo over the Sam Maguire finishing line. Now those dreams have been put on hold by Covid-19.

The most recent Croke Park position indicated October as the earliest possible starting point for an inter-county resumption, while GAA president John Horan has placed a major doubt over any Gaelic games while social distancing remains a public health priority.

"I speak probably for nearly every player - I think we'd all love a call sooner rather than later," Keegan said on 2FM's Game On tonight.

"Not even to put us out of our misery. Probably just to give us something in mind.

"So if they're pulling the year, at least then we have a target of potentially going back next year."
