Star midfielder Hugh McCluggage from the Brisbane Lions is pondering contract offers amidst significant interest from rival teams. With a six-year deal on the table from Brisbane taking him through to the end of 2030, McCluggage’s decision looms large as a top free agent in the AFL.

Meanwhile, West Coast Eagles’ Elliot Yeo finds himself as the center of attention from multiple clubs thanks to his strong form in 2024. As an unrestricted free agent, Yeo’s stellar performances have piqued the interest of several rivals.

Geelong Cats have initiated discussions for a fresh contract with premiership player Jack Henry, aiming to secure the key defender amid increasing competition in the free agency market. The Cats have been eyeing deals for key players, having recently locked in Max Holmes to a four-year extension.
