GWS are confident of retaining star forward Jeremy Cameron amidst a sweep of key re-signings.
Utility Lachie Whitfield became the latest Giant to recommit to the club after penning a new seven-year deal on Monday.
It leaves Cameron and Zac Williams as the main two priorities to re-sign with the pair uncontracted beyond 2020.
Giants football operations manager Jason McCartney was happy with where talks sit with the reigning Coleman medallist ahead of the new season.
“We made a conscious decision for Jeremy to really leave those discussions alone during the season,” McCartney told RSN on Tuesday.
“Jeremy was really appreciative of that, and obviously had a great year. We’ve had some good chats post the season finishing.
“We’re really comfortable with where it all fits. We’re positive.
“Until you sign off on a deal, you never really know, but we feel like it’s pretty well placed.”
Whitfield conceded there would be interest from Victorian clubs for Cameron and Williams, but was hopeful of seeing them remain in Western Sydney.
“It’s going to be tough (to keep them),” Whitfield said.
“I know there’s obviously going to be a lot of speculation for those two and there’s probably going to be deals from the Melbourne clubs that are going to be quite enticing, but we’re real tight family up here and I’m hoping that they will stay.”
McCarthy backed the club’s decision to reward its stars with big deals, with Josh Kelly and and Stephen Coniglio signing long-term extensions earlier this year.
“I think the biggest thing for us is that we work by the mantra that we’re a club like no other. We do things a bit differently,” he said.
“With our key players, if we can get them on long-term deals, we’re happy to go (down) that path.
“It gives us more flexibility and certainty for the future.”
