Fremantle CEO responds to Cerra contract speculation


Fremantle CEO Simon Garlick says the club is having “really positive discussions” with midfielder Adam Cerra as rumours continue to swirl about his future.

Cerra, 21, is one of the most exciting young midfielders at the club and has averaged nearly 24 touches from Fremantle’s four matches this season, but remains out of contract at the end of season.

Kim Hagdorn told SEN WA Drive on Tuesday that Cerra has a contract offer from Carlton worth nearly $3 million over four years.

Responding to his comments, Garlick was hopeful Cerra would turn his back on big-money offers from elsewhere and re-sign with the Dockers.

“He’s clearly a highly valued member of our team,’ he said on SEN WA’s The Sporting Goss.

“He’s an outstanding young man and he’s incredibly invested in the program and club in 2021 for what we hope is the foreseeable future.

“With that in mind, we’re in really positive discussions with Adam (Cerra) and his management and we look forward to progressing those positively in the weeks and months.”

Garlick confirmed that Cerra and his manager currently had an offer on the table and was “looking forward” to those discussions ramping up in the coming weeks.

“We’ve put something to Adam (Cerra) that we’re talking to him and his management about at the moment,” he said.

“Those are positive discussions and we look forward to working with Adam and his management in the coming weeks.”
