Sean Cavanagh will make a decision on his inter-county future 'sooner rather than later'.
Cavanagh had hoped to end his inter-county career with another All-Ireland title but his dream was ended when Tyrone were beaten by Mayo in the quarter-final.
Speaking after the defeat, the five-time All-Star revealed he would take his time before deciding whether to commit to a 16th season with the Red Hand but Moy's early exit from the club championship means he is free to confirm his position sooner than expected.
"It was disappointing with the club. It will be a case now of the next couple of weeks probably, having a few chats and deciding what to do," Cavanagh is quoted as saying in the Irish Examiner.
"I’ll have a chat with the medical team, with Mickey (Harte) and with my own family, and whatever else, and see what’s right. But it will probably come a bit sooner rather than later now because of the effects of the club championship ending so early."
As well as winning Division 2 of the Allianz Football League, Tyrone were crowned Ulster champions before losing to Mayo in the All-Ireland quarter-finals.
Despite the disappointment at missing out on another All-Ireland win, Cavanagh is confident Tyrone can improve in 2017 and he has backed Mickey Harte to bring in some new faces to help their cause.
“I think every year you always have an influx, you need an influx of three or four new players in any squad," he said.
“The age profile of the team is quite young when you look at the majority of the lads there at the moment. But at the same time, there will always be a few guys of serious talent that are going to make the breakthrough, and rightly so.”
