Fremantle young gun Adam Cerra will assess his options for the future as contract extension talks with the Dockers are put on hold.

According to The Herald Sun’s Eliza Reilly, the 21-year-old is in no hurry to sign a new deal with the Western Australian club, with Victorian sides likely to be interested in luring Cerra home.

Cerra will be out-of-contract at the end of the season and will be in high demand after a strong 2020 campaign with the Dockers, averaging 17.35 disposals and 3.76 tackles per game.

It is understood that Cerra is likely to wait until the 2021 season is underway to make a decision on his future, while Fremantle list boss David Walls has already begun discussions with the midfielder’s management.

The versatile onballer is reportedly keen to hold a midfield spot under Justin Longmuir as captain Nat Fyfe and fellow 2017 first-round pick Andrew Brayshaw continue to star for the Dockers.

Brayshaw signed a new four-year deal with Fremantle in December last year, with he and Cerra both finishing equal third in the club’s 2020 Doig Medal count.
