Out of contract Giants utility Adam Tomlinson is believed to be hopeful to stay at Spotless Stadium, according to SEN Breakfast‘s Sam Edmund.

Tomlinson, who is currently unsigned, was a shock omission from the Giants’ side to take on the Western Bulldogs in Saturday’s elimination final, despite featuring in every game under Leon Cameron this season.

The 26-year-old is being closely monitored by Victorian clubs once again having been linked to St Kilda in 2017, before re-signing with the Giants.

Tomlinson is believed to be in line for an extension, but his immediate future will remain in doubt with potential suitors beginning to ask the question once again.

“Adam Tomlinson… he’s an unrestricted free agent this year,” Edmund told SEN Breakfast.

“He’s a Victorian, 26, inaugural member of the GWS Giants and has been one of those players that has been repeatedly asked about since he was drafted from the Oakleigh Chargers.

“The Giants say he is keen to stay and has repeatedly said he’d like to stay in Sydney. They think they’re going to get there; he’s going to stay, and all will be well in Sydney for Adam Tomlinson.”

Tomlinson has capped 137 games for the Giants since making his debut in 2012.

GWS have already penned deals with vice-captains Josh Kelly and Stephen Coniglio with stars Jeremy Cameron and Lachie Whitfield still out of contract next year.
