Fremantle star Nat Fyfe says he will explore his options as a free agent when his current contract expires at the end of next season.
Speaking to Channel 7 on Wednesday night, Fyfe said he would only re-sign with Fremantle if he believed the club was headed in the right direction.
“The idea of free agency is that players do have a say in their career and it would be remiss of me not to look at every possible option,” Fyfe said.
“But if I see a strong future at Freo then that’s where I’ll be playing my footy.”
The 2015 Bronwlow Medalist managed just five games this season, before succumbing to a season ending leg injury.
The Dockers have struggled in his absence and have suffered countless injuries to key players, to see them manage just three wins for the season, on the back of the minor premiership in 2015.
Fremantle’s rebuild will start at the trade table, with the Dockers all but certain to secure the signatures of GWS forward Cam McCarthy and Hawthorn premiership player Brad Hill this trade period and have also been linked with Geelong’s Shane Kersten and and Giants’ forward Rory Lobb.
