Josh Kelly could be set for a move back to Victoria at the end of the season when he becomes a restricted free agent.
The GWS midfielder has an option on his current deal to extend his stay at the Giants b eight years for $8 million. However, SEN's Sam Edmund is reporting that Kelly may be set to head home to Victoria.
Edmund is reporting that it is "more likely" the 2017 All-Australian will test the free agency market at the end of the season.
“I think Josh Kelly is well and truly captain of the intrigue list (when it comes to restricted free agents this year),” he said on SEN’s Crunch Time.
“The Giants were caught between a rock and a hard place, they’ve signed this contract which will see him earn eight million over eight years if he takes up this option in his contract.
“(Josh) Kelly is one not to be rushed and he’s one of the great contract procrastinators it was put to me, I think it’s more likely he leaves but where he goes to, there’s only a small number of windows there."

“He’s 26, he was an All-Australian in 2017 and has been a stand-in skipper this year and I would argue he’s been in some reasonable form.”
