Melbourne has announced its interest in Brisbane Lion Daniel Merrett and Greater Western Sydney’s Sam Frost as the Demons prepare to cover for the imminent loss of James Frawley.
Frawley is yet to make a call on his future, but it is believed his chances of staying at the Demons are minimal following the interest of both Hawthorn and Geelong.
Demons football manager Josh Mahoney told SEN Radio that both Merrett and Frost were viable options to cover the potential hole in defence left by the loss of Frawley.
“The whole year we’ve looked at the situation, if James leaves the club we need to have someone to come in and play a key position role,” Mahoney said.
“Daniel Merrett was one name that came up, Sam Frost was another name.
“There’s a number of guys out there we’ve been talking to that can potentially fill that role.
“It’s very early on in negotiations, but we’d like to think we’re well placed for both of them.”
