Greater Western Sydney coach Leon Cameron says the club will announce key signings in the near future in an attempt to stave off attempts by rival clubs from stealing its young talent.
Young-guns Jonathan Patton, Jeremy Cameron, Dylan Shiel, Adam Treloar and Stephen Coniglio are all coming off contract at the end of 2015 and would a number of clubs are rumoured to be circling.
Key forward Patton is understood to be the subject of a big-money bid from the Western Bulldogs, who are crying out for a big-bodied front man.
Kristian Jaksch is off contract at the end of 2014, and it has been reported that all Victorian clubs have shown interest in the key position player, with Carlton believed to be the most keen.
Cameron told media on Thursday that he is content with the situation and the club’s priority is to sign those who come off contract at the end of 2014.
“We’ll make an announcement in a couple of weeks’ time on a couple of our boys,” Cameron said.
“But there’s still 16 months before Jonathan comes out of contract, like a number of these players.
“There’s a lot of speculation that happens, when realistically I’m more concerned about some of our boys that are out of contract this year.
“We understand that players shift clubs, but as Jon stated before, 16 months is a long time.
“But the way he’s progressing at this footy club, we couldn’t be happier with him, along with a number of our other players.”
The Giants currently sit 17th on the AFL ladder on equal points with bottom-placed St Kilda.
