However, Kent, who grew up in Western Australia, is said to be happy to remain at Melbourne and has a strong relationship with his teammates and the Demons’ coaching staff.

But Melbourne is eager to re-sign the youngster given his close relationship with fellow West Australian, Jesse Hogan, who could command as much as $15 million on the open market, according to former Brisbane star Jonathan Brown.

Kent has played every game so far this season and has played 39 games in four season with the Dees, since being selected with pick No. 48 in the 2012 National Draft.
