A decision by off-contract Sydney forward Logan McDonald could be confirmed as early as this week, with a call by the Swans gun now "imminent".

The 22-year-old remains unsigned for next season as he and the club look to sort through a potential contract extension amid reported ongoing interest from rival clubs.

A product out of Bunbury, Western Australia, McDonald has long been tied to both clubs from his home state ahead of the expiry of his current contract.

That deal was penned early into the 2022 season when McDonald was said to be on the radar of rivals in just his second season since being recruited with Pick 4 through the draft by Sydney.

With another contract call looming, further interest in McDonald has been anticipated in 2024, however in-form forward units at both Fremantle and West Coast have also suggested both sides could be looking to add to their list elsewhere.

Athletic Eagles attacker Jake Waterman is making a surprising push for the Coleman Medal this year in the absence of injured co-captain Oscar Allen, while Fremantle's Josh Treacy is enjoying a breakout year alongside fellow talls Jye Amiss and Luke Jackson.

While both clubs might've cooled their interest, the Swans have reportedly ramped up negotiations with McDonald to be near a finalised deal.

According to Triple M Perth's Ryan Daniels, an announcement on a new deal could be made in the coming days.

"There's been a lot of talk about Logan McDonald the last couple of years," Daniels said on Monday.

"Will he come back to Fremantle? Will he potentially go to West Coast? Will he stay at Sydney?

"I believe that an announcement that he'll stay at Sydney is imminent. I reckon we might see it even this week.

"I think that's a good thing for everybody."

The expected re-signing of McDonald would complete a perfect retention period for Sydney after entering the year with five key players unsigned for 2025.

The Swans secured star midfielder Errol Gulden to a new deal until the end of 2028, while Oliver Florent (2029) and James Rowbottom (2028) also inked long-term extensions.

Following high levels of interest from several rival clubs, free agent Will Hayward also recommitted to stay in New South Wales until the end of 2029 last week.

The Swans still have a handful of key players without deals beyond 2024, with Robie Fox, Harry Cunningham and former first-round pick Jacob Konstanty among them.

Star ball-winner Chad Warner is also a priority re-signing despite being contracted until the end of next year.
