Lions’ CEO Greg Swann said the club intends to keep the 19-year-old and will not be trading him.
“We understand his position but the Club has no intention of trading James,” said Swann.
“That’s all we have to say on it right now.”
Aish was selected with pick No. 7 in the 2013 National Draft and has played 32 senior games in his first two seasons with the club.
