Six clubs interested in Adelaide midfielder Jarryd Lyons

Out-of-contract Adelaide midfielder Jarryd Lyons has attracted interest from around half a dozen clubs, according to his manager.

Lyons’ manager, Winston Rous, from Phoenix Management Group, told AFL Trade Radio on Tuesday afternoon that his client would prefer to remain at the Crows, however, the two parties have so far been unable to reach an agreement on a new deal, making other clubs take notice.

While his preference is remain at Adelaide, Rous says the Crows will need to come to the party with an appropriate offer to retain his services.

“We’re having dialogue with the club (Crows) around where he sits. He’s got an intent to stay,” Rous said.

“It’s got to be fair and work for all parties. What was mooted yesterday on the Blues, that’s unlikely.

“It’d be about half a dozen (clubs that have shown interest). It’s a mix (of Victorian and interstate clubs).”

The 24-year-old played 20 games in 2016, averaging 21 disposals, 4.7 tackles and 3.3 marks.
