Kelly, the son of former Collingwood champion Craig, remains unsigned past the 2021 season as football remains the main focus this year for the 26-year-old.
The 26-year-old revealed on SEN that discussions with the West Lakes side are progressing, with contract talks heading in the right direction.
“We’re working through (the contract talks) at the moment,” he said.
“That’ll be something that we’ll work through over the coming weeks and into the end of the season.
“That’s progressing okay and going in the right track.
“I’m not the type of person to get too fussed about it all, when it happens it happens. I don’t really concern myself with it overly.
“If it happens at the end of the year then that’s fine with me."
Kelly has played 106 games for Adelaide since making his debut in 2015, becoming a key contributor to Matthew Nicks' defence.
The Crows are set for another busy off-season, with out-of-contract trio Matt Crouch, Daniel Talia and Tom Lynch reportedly up for grabs at season's end.
The Crows have landed in Victoria after their Round 19 home clash with Hawthorn was moved to Marvel Stadium due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak in South Australia.
