Geelong’s Tim Kelly has spoken about his playing future, although he remains “undecided” as to where he’ll ply his trade in 2019.

Kelly had a fantastic rookie season for the Cats and racked up 13 Brownlow votes, to go along with 22.9 disposals, 4.0 inside 50s and 4.3 clearances per game.

The 24-year-old has been linked with a move back to Western Australia, with both West Coast and Fremantle keeping tabs on his availability as the trade period draws closer.

The lure of family could be enough to see Kelly head back home, although he spoke to AFL Media on Monday and said he hasn’t made a call on his future just yet.

“To be honest, my future is a little bit undecided at this stage,” Kelly said.

“There’s a lot being said about that, but I love the club. I just need to see what comes my way.”

Kelly also touched on the side’s Elimination Final loss to Melbourne, but is confident the club can bounce back and be stronger next season.

“It was very disappointing,” Kelly said.

“I think everyone that’s part of Geelong would be feeling pretty disappointed right now, but the belief within the group is there. I’ve got no doubt the group would bounce back.”


  1. Nobody wanted him in the west as he was missed 5 times in the drafts. Geelong took him last year and give him a chance to play in the AFL this year and he is looking to go back!!!😠.
    Give me a brake.
    He should see the contract out and then he can really see where he belongs.
    Terrible attitude.
