The 22-year-old has played just the 24 games for the Suns since making his debut in 2017 and now faces a long queue ahead of him in Dew's midfield pecking order.
Young duo Matt Rowell and Noah Anderson are destined to lead the club for the years ahead, while Brayden Fiorini has looked to strengthen his case in the midfield following a 41-disposal game against the Lions on the weekend.
The growing crop of exciting onballers has placed Brodie out-of-favour in Queensland, with Morris believing the Murray Bushrangers product will look elsewhere at the upcoming exchange window.
“He’s been starved of opportunity, he’s played just five games in the last two year. It’s a certainty in this year’s trade period that he’ll be looking for more opportunities elsewhere and the Suns, a bit like Peter Wright last year, will be happy to facilitate that,” he said.
“The real key question for Will Brodie is are any clubs interested in him? He‘s a good player inside, he’s a big body, but if no clubs are interested in him he’ll have to be at the Gold Coast Suns next year.
“It feels like in many ways Stuart Dew has stamped his papers.”
Essendon have shown interest in Brodie's services in the past, however now look to have a greater focus on the midfield talent within their own four walls, recently re-signing star trio Darcy Parish, Zach Merrett and Jake Stringer to new deals.
Brodie has averaged 18.5 possessions, 4.4 tackles and 3.8 clearances per game across his career with the Suns.
