Tyrone have received a massive boost with the news that Cathal McShane will be available for the Championship and the rest of their Allianz Football League campaign.

The 2019 All-Star was set to make the move down under to play Aussie Rules but the 24-year-old will now be available to Tyrone manager Mickey Harte for 2020.

A statement from the Adelaide Crows read: "McShane trained with Adelaide on a 10-day trial last month while weighing up a move to Australia.

Crows general manager Justin Reid said: "It is a big decision to relocate to the other side of the world and pursue a professional career in a different sport.

"We will continue to look for opportunities to bring talent into our club."

Tyrone started their Division One campaign with a win over Meath but the 2018 All-Ireland finalists were beaten by Monaghan last weekend.

Mickey Harte's side host Kerry at Healy Park in Omagh this weekend and could include last season's joint-top scorer in the Football Championship.
