Tyrone all star forward Cathal McShane looks set to remain with Tyrone after Australian Rules side Adelaide Crows confirmed last night that the player would not be "relocating to the other side of the world".
McShane trained with Adelaide on a ten-day trial last month but is now expected to remain with Mickey Harte's side.
In the club statement, the Crows General Manager said McShane weighed up the move, but wasn't ready for it.

It read: "It is a big decision to relocate to the other side of the world and pursue a professional career in a different sport.
"Ultimately, this was not something that Cathal was ready for and we wish him the very best in his endeavours both on and off the field."
The All-Star forward could now be included in the Tyrone squad for Sunday's Allianz League Division 1 clash with Kerry in Omagh.
