Adelaide coach Don Pyke has come out and said that he is willing to keep forward Mitch McGovern, even though he wishes to be traded, if the right offer isn’t received.
McGovern told Pyke that he wants out of the Crows just a year after the forward signed a three year deal.
“We will try to get the best we can for Mitch and if we can’t get a good enough deal, then he will remain an Adelaide player next year,” Pyke told reporters.
“When Mitch came and saw me earlier in the week, from where he’s coming from, the decision he has made where he feels it’s not the best place for him to play his footy,” he said.
“There’s a number of reasons and factors, and I won’t go into detail, that I spoke to about with Mitch. Some of those are historical, some of those are environmental.
“That’s it, it’s his personal view … and clearly if we can’t get a deal done we’ll have to work through some of those issues to make sure he’s able to perform the way we know he’s capable of.”
