Joe Daniher poised to tour training facilities of opposition club "very soon"


Essendon restricted free agent Joe Daniher is poised to tour Brisbane’s training facilities in the coming weeks, according to SEN Chief Sports Reporter Sam Edmund.

Daniher’s future continues to be the subject of much speculation as the football world awaits his next move.

The 26-year-old requested a trade to Sydney at the end of last season, but stayed with the Bombers when a deal couldn’t be reached.

With the key forward now a free agent, Edmund believes Daniher will likely leave the club, with Brisbane one of the clubs interested in securing his services.

“I think we all think Joe Daniher is on the move,” he said on SEN Mornings.

“Is it Brisbane or is it Sydney? Depends on who you speak to, but the latest scuttlebutt has him touring the Brisbane Lions facilities very, very soon.

“It’s always been a lifestyle decision for Joe Daniher and I wonder what he will do going forward. His currency has certainly changed from last year.

“That first game back was unbelievable and we all came swooning but he’s come back to the pack since then.

“But if he can get himself fit and firing, a full pre-season and a happy state of mind, who knows what is possible.”

Geelong is another club reportedly interested in Daniher and 2020 Coleman Medalist Tom Hawkins said the Cats should pursue him if it meant their side was improved as a result.

"If a player like Joe – there have been a few others speculated as well – are going to improve us and our list management team can fit them in our system and salary cap then absolutely we would be looking to bring players like Joe in," Hawkins told reporters on Tuesday.
