West Coast star Andrew Gaff has broken his silence on his contract talks on Mix 94.5's Big Breakfast with Clairsy, Matt and Kymba, saying it's something he's still "working through".
ANDREW GAFF OPENS UP:
Gaff, who is out of contract at the end of the season, was outright asked whether he would stay at West Coast beyond this season, saying his current priority is helping his teammates with their finals campaign.
"I hope so," he told Mix 94.5.
"It's still something we're working through with management and the club, with what's happened there's sort of more stuff to think about, which we'll continue to do over the next few weeks.
"With the team playing finals, that's the priority. As I said to them when I got back to Perth, I'm so committed to what the boys have in front of them for the rest of the year.
"I'm focused on that and helping the midfield group where I can and helping them produce a strong performance next Saturday.
"No doubt it's the elephant in the room and something that's going to come up and something that's hard to avoid, so we'll continue to work through that."
The team asked Gaff whether North Melbourne - who are strongly linked to the midfielder - was one of the clubs in the conversation.
"Yeah, it's one of them," he replied.
"But it's amazing what gets talked about at this time of year as well...once the season's finished, the amount of rumours that go on for the next one or two weeks before or during trade period is almost ridiculous.
