Tyrone star Sean Cavanagh has tonight confirmed that he hopes to be back with Mickey Harte's outfit for another season of inter-county football.

Cavanagh won his fifth Ulster crown last summer to go with the three All-Ireland medals and five All Star awards he has picked up, but a sour end to 2016 looks to have been the decisive factor in the Tyrone stalwart returning for yet another campaign.

Harte's side were eliminated at the quarter-final stage last season after a narrow one point defeat to Mayo, with Cavanagh watching the closing stages from the sideline after getting sent off.

The Tyrone boss said in the aftermath of the game that he expected Cavanagh to make himself available for 2017, and the 33-year-old confirmed tonight that he will be back to try and add a fourth All-Ireland medal to his collection before he hangs up his boots.
