TYRONE star Cathal McShane has turned down a move to Australian Football League side Adelaide Crows.
McShane trained with Adelaide on a ten-day trial last month but is now expected to remain with Mickey Harte's side.
"It is a big decision to relocate to the other side of the world and pursue a professional career in a different sport," said Crows general manager Justin Reid.
"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.
"We will continue to look for opportunities to bring talent into our club."
McShane did not train with Tyrone on Tuesday evening but will now link up with the squad and is expected to be back for this Sunday's league match in Omagh against Kerry.
