Adelaide free agent Tom Doedee is in no rush to come to a final decision on his playing future as the list of clubs interested in his services grows.

A restricted free agent, Doedee has gained reported interest from grand finalists Brisbane and Collingwood, with his time at West Lakes expected to come to an end after eight years.

The Crows will have the option to match a rival's bid for the 190cm defender given his restricted status, a move that would force the bidding club to enter a trade deal to acquire Doedee's services.

The Lions are looking to bolster their backline and potentially go a step further in 2024 following their four-point grand final loss on Saturday to Collingwood, who are said to be showing some level of interest in Doedee as a potential long-term replacement for veteran backman Jeremy Howe.

According to 7 News Melbourne, Sydney has joined the race for Doedee as they too look to fill a void in their backline group following the retirement of Paddy McCartin.

Having recently returned from the New South Wales capital, Doedee said he initially thought his future would be sewn up by now, however he doesn't want to rush into a decision.

"If you had asked me two months ago, I would've thought it'd be done by now," Doedee told reporters on Monday.

"There's just so much to play out, and I'm not someone who rushes decisions. I'm quite a deep thinker and conservative naturally.

"So I want to plan it out and make sure it's the right thing for me, my family and both parties involved.

"There's a bit to figure out. It's taking its time but we're getting there."

Brisbane are said to have a five-year deal worth close to $3 million on offer for the 26-year-old, who is expected to have a greater chance of heading to the Lions rather than a return to his home state of Victoria.

The 2023 free agency window will open on Friday and will run for one week, with North Melbourne's Ben McKay and St Kilda's Jade Gresham the only other remaining restricted free agents yet to cement their future.

The Kangaroos have already confirmed McKay will depart this off-season, with the key defender expected to land at Essendon, while Gresham could also join him in a move to Tullamarine in the coming days.
