Jamie Clarke has cast doubt over his inter-county future by refusing to commit to Armagh for 2016.
Clarke's focus is firmly set on helping Crossmaglen Rangers prepare for the All-Ireland semi-final against Castlebar Mitchels on February 13 and a possible final appearance on St Patrick's Day.
The 26-year-old headed to the US after Armagh's defeat to Galway in the All-Ireland qualifiers spent last summer and he is not sure if he will return to Kieran McGeeney's squad in 2016.
"It has been a tough year and from my own point of view I have to think of my own future as well away from football. It's difficult to balance football and work at the moment," Clarke is quoted as saying in the Irish Independent.
"There is a lot to think about but ultimately, it's very difficult to leave the football behind. It pulls at the heart strings at times. At the minute, I'm playing it by ear and I don't want to make any rash decisions.
"I'm committed to Cross' until the end of the year for definite, to the end of our All-Ireland campaign. I'll take it from there then."
