BILLY DENNEHY has spoken for the first time since Cork City manager, John Caulfield, announced that the 28-year-old is free to “explore other options”.
Since that surprise statement on Tuesday morning, Billy Dennehy, has publicly committed himself to playing his football on Leeside.
“I am still a Cork City player and I love playing for the club,” said Dennehy speaking to the Irish Examiner.
Tomorrow night, Cork City will play the second leg of their Europa League qualifier against KR Reyjkavik. The first leg ended 1-1 with Dennehy setting up City’s goal scored by Alan Bennett.
“I am happy at the club but obviously I am disappointed not to be in Iceland with the rest of the lads and to be missing such a key game,” he said.
“I wish the lads all the best and I hope they get the result they need to progress in the competition,” he added.
In the first leg in Turner Cross, the former Dynamos player was involved in a scuffle with teammate, Mark O’Sullivan.
City Boss, Caulfield, has confirmed that the decision to let go Dennehy, was not related with the incident against KR Reyjkavik last Thursday night.
Meanwhile, Dennehy, has already been linked, along with brother, Darren, with moves to, Limerick City, Shamrock Rovers and St Patrick Athletic.

Have to have a bit of sympathy for Billy Dennehy should have plenty of clubs in for him.
