Andrew Gaff is someone who always likes to take his team when working out a new contract according to his player manager Paul Connors.
With players re-signing left and right, Gaff’s value continues to rise as the premier out-of-contract midfielder in the competition.
Connors confirmed he’s received offers from a number of Victorian clubs, but doesn’t appear in any rush for the midfielder to make a decision.
“I think there’s six Melbourne based clubs that would be interested in Andrew Gaff, but West Coast is a pretty good club that’s doing a lot right and they don’t lose many players,” he told the AFL Nation pregame show.
“He’s a deep thinker who just takes his time and I said it last year, Josh Kelly in July was leaving (GWS) and in August he’s staying, so Gaff’s just taking his time.
“He’s a young man who always does his contracts late.
“(Gaff) doesn’t seek out (offers from other clubs), he just knows that there’s interest back home.”
Connors praised West Coast for the way they’ve handled the situation with their out of contract star.
“Of course (the Eagles) would love an answer, but they’re very respectful. They’re a mature club that’s been through this before,” Connors said.
“They’ve got finals to think about and top two and other issues on their mind.
“He’s got everything in front of him from West Coast, he’s just grappling with whether he stays.”
The Eagles will be hoping to strengthen their grip on the top two as they prepare for the Derby on Sunday afternoon against the Dockers.
