GWS list manager Jason McCartney says midfielder Tom Scully is still weighing up his future as talks of a move to Hawthorn gain traction.

Salary cap issues at the Giants have forced them to look to move or move players such as Dylan Shiel, Rory Lobb and Will Setterfield even though they are contracted to the club.

McCartney spoke at the PWC Connors Sports Breakfast on Monday morning, saying Scully and GWS had held discussions about a move to Hawthorn.

“He’s a bit undecided at the moment,” he said.

“There may be an opportunity (for Scully) to come back to Melbourne, and we’ve had some chats with the Hawthorn footy club around that, but there’s a fair bit to play out.

“He is very happy if he stays and serves (out) his contract with the Giants.

“There’s a bit of a conversation to go on between myself and Mark Kleiman, Tom’s manager, and we’ll work through that,” he said.

“We’ll also work through what the opportunities will look like of Tom fulfilling his contract with us, which he would be happy to do.”

McCartney also said GWS would not pay some of Scully’s salary next season if he was at another club.
