Greater Western Sydney midfielder Josh Kelly has become the latest star of the Giants’ gun midfield and now the latest player to be courted by a Victorian club.

Reports emerged on Tuesday that North Melbourne has offered Josh Kelly a nine-year deal worth $9 million.

The 22-year-old, who was  selected with pick No.2 in the 2013 National Draft played 18 games in his debut season and has now played 62 matches, including every game last season, when he averaged 24 disposals per game.

He is now faced with a difficult conundrum. Stay a Giant and almost certainly taste success, or chase the cash and set himself up for life.

GWS coach Leon Cameron believes Kelly will choose to re-sign with the Giants.

“I’m really confident Josh wants to stay at the footy club and he’ll deal with what’s come in front of him right now,” Cameron told reporters on Wednesday afternoon.

“He really likes the place, he’s in the leadership group, he’s playing some really good footy, he’s very popular and he wants to stay.

“We’ll look forward to getting him done and dusted in the next couple of weeks, or month or so.”

Kelly has collected 27 disposals in both of the Giants’ first two matches this season.
