Jarryd Lyons could leave Adelaide after contract negotiations stall

Adelaide midfielder Jarryd Lyons has attracted interest from at least two clubs as contract negotiations stall with the Crows.

The out-of-contract 24-year-old played 20 games in 2016, averaging 21 disposals, 4.7 tackles and 3.3 marks.

Lyons has not asked for a trade, and is a required player, however, the Adelaide Advertiser has reported that he is unlikely to sign what is considered an underwhelming contract offer from the Crows.

His manager, Scott Lucas, believes the offer to be inferior to his current value on the open market, with the 55-gamer in a position to command considerably more money.

Given the current stand off between the two parties, the Gold Coast Suns have declared their interest in Lyon, according to the Advertiser, while Matthew Llyod told AFL Trade Radio on Friday morning that North Melbourne is also very interested in the Victorian.

Lyons has played 55 games for the Crows since being selected in the fourth round (pick 61) of the 2010 National Draft.

The trade period officially kicks off on Monday, October, 10.
