during the round seven AFL match between the Gold Coast Suns and the Melbourne Demons at Metricon Stadium on May 7, 2016 in Gold Coast, Australia.

Gold Coast midfielder Dion Prestia is reportedly being chased by four Victorian clubs.

Prestia has told the Suns he wants to pout contract talks on hold until later in the year, fueling speculation he could request a trade at season’s end.

Richmond, Essendon and Carlton are all keen on securing the services of the 23-year-old according to 3AW’s Sam McClure.

“Someone who has been…of significant interest here in Victoria is Dion Prestia, McClure said.

“The three clubs that are leading the charge are Essendon, Richmond and Carlton.”

Former player and now commentator Gerard Healy said that Melbourne can also be added to the list of potential destinations for the highly rated onballer, who is yet to open contract talks about a new deal with the Suns.
