Adelaide coach Don Pyke has strongly denied star forward Charlie Cameron will leave the club following Lions coach Chris Fagan’s interest in the speedster.
Pyke was not happy with his Brisbane counterpart, angrily declaring Cameron would not leave.
“Very disappointing to be honest. He’s under contract so he’s going nowhere,” Pyke said.
“It’s unusual you would see comments about players who are under contract.
“I don’t think it’s appropriate you talk about players at other clubs that are under contract.
“He’s got another year, that’s why we contracted him for next year (to stay).”
Cameron has been an important contributor for the Crows so far this season, averaging almost 14 disposals and a goal a game. He made his Adelaide debut in 2014.
“We’re certainly interested in getting players to our club to help us progress up the ladder and his age profile and talent would certainly be something we’d be interested in,” Lions’ coach Chris Fagan said on Tuesday.
“From a coaching perspective, if Charlie Cameron were to be available and interested in coming to Brisbane we’d love to have him as part of our team.”
The uncertainty surrounding Cameron’s future will not help Adelaide, who already have a number of young starts attracting interest from rival clubs, including Jake Lever and Mitch McGovern.
