Lions star Dayne Beams has ended speculation surrounding his future after revealing that he will be staying at Brisbane.
The 28-year old was linked to a return to Victoria, possibly his former club Collingwood, despite being contracted at the Lions until the end of 2019.
“After having our exit meetings earlier this week, I thought it was a good time to let everybody know I won’t be going anywhere,” Beams told the club website.
“I love the coach, the playing group, and am excited about where this footy club is headed.
“I have never asked for a trade away from the Lions and would like to put an end to any speculation over my playing future. I will be seeing out my contract here.”
The gun midfielder is coming off a stellar season for Brisbane, averaging 29.1 disposals and earning a nomination into the 40-man All-Australian squad.
