Essendon utility Jake Carlisle says he is likely to wait until the end of the season to see how the club is placed before discussing his contract with the Bombers.

Carlisle has attracted interest from several rival clubs as the 23-year-old is out of contract at season’s end.

The swingman said his form, as well as the ongoing supplements saga are two of the main factors in his decision to wait until later in the year to discuss his contract.

“We’re having negotiations at the moment but we just want to wait for obviously the WADA and ASADA stuff to finish,” Carlisle told

“I want to play consistent footy, I want to play finals, and obviously we’re here to win a flag. The contract’s not at the top of my mind at the moment because I know if I can play good footy then who knows, I could sign up next week.

“But it’s more the fact I want to focus on our footy and I want to focus on the team winning. The contract should take care of itself.”
