Fremantle free agent Zac Clarke is expected to decide his future late next week.
Clarke has for some time been weighing up whether to extend his career with the Dockers or seek a fresh start at one of several rival clubs pursuing him.
The ruckman has been focused on Peel Thunder’s WAFL finals campaign for the past month, which ended in glory last Sunday when Freo’s affiliate claimed its maiden premiership with a 23-point win over Subiaco.
Fremantle is believed to be increasingly confident Clarke will stay, but the 26-year-old has suitors in and outside his home state of Victoria and has yet to make up his mind.
Clarke has his 2016 exit interview with Fremantle early next week, a meeting that will help shape his decision. He will likely make a final call by the opening of the free agency period next Friday.
