Adelaide forward Eddie Betts has one year remaining on his current contract, although there’s no guarantee he’ll be at the Crows next season.

Gold Coast are reportedly interested in bringing the veteran to the Suns next season in a player/mentor role, similar to that of Luke Hodge at the Lions.

According to the Herald Sun, Betts’ former club Carlton are also keeping tabs on his movements.

As many as six clubs have contacted Betts’ management W Sports and Media after he was left out of Adelaide’s clash with the Blues.

“There has been interest,” Winter told The Advertiser.

“We received calls from a number of clubs who are interested in Eddie, some in a playing and mentoring role, but right now his priority is to stay at the Crows.

“He’s contracted for next year and other than taking calls we haven’t spoken to other clubs.”

Gold Coast is in the market for a veteran who can help bolster the club both on and off the field, as they continue to monitor Shaun Burgoyne’s contract talks.

The Suns were also reportedly keen on Jarryd Roughead, although he announced his retirement on Monday.
