The immediate future of Gold Coast’s Harley Bennell should be known by Thursday.

The Suns are likely to announce what club imposed sanctions Bennell will receive, with Gold Coast chairman John Witheriff scheduled to front the media on Thursday.

Coach Rodney Eade said Bennell is a required player at the club.

“From my point of view, I want Harley to stay,” Eade said on Melbourne radio.

“He’s obviously a talented player, but talent is only half the equation.

“He needs to be able to commit to the group and what we stand for, and I am fairly confident he will.’’
