Brisbane Lions General Manager David Noble says the ball is in the court of Fremantle star Lachie Neale should he want to join the Lions in the upcoming trade period.

Speaking on NAB AFL Trade Radio, Noble said the Lions were waiting for Neale to make his decision.

“It’s got to be his call now from his side of things. We need to sit back and wait and see how things unfold,” Noble said.

“He is probably not the only target we have at this time of year.

“We just have to sit back now and it will be his call. If he decides to come, then obviously we will try and make something happen.”

Noble provided an update on whether the Lions could give up their first pick in the draft, pick four as it currently stands.

“I’ve always believed the draft value and the trade value resets itself every year,” he said.

“I think you try to look at what value you got and ours isn’t just about a pick or a player, there’s lot of strategy that goes into how you construct other deals that you might be trying to put together.

“We have always been a group or a club that is prepared to roll and split picks as well.”
