Mark Stevens has said his mail is that Gold Coast co-captain Steven May is likely to remain at the Suns beyond this season.

The star defender is yet to sign a deal with the Suns beyond 2017 and has commanded plenty of interest.

"Yeah, Steven May is the other big one," Stevens said on Triple M's pre-game coverage of Port Adelaide/Hawthorn on Thursday.

"(He) hasn't signed, of course, (and he's) out of contract at the end of the year.

"Bit of talk about St Kilda and Collingwood (chasing him)."

Despite that, Stevo suggested the Suns are confident May will stay.

"My mail is that Gold Coast are pretty comfortable that they'll keep him," he said.

"He's got a few issues off the park family-wise that he's just sorting through. Once that's done I think he will stay a Sun - and they really need him to stay, because he's a ripping guy (and) a good leader of that footy club.

"That'd be a huge blow, wouldn't it, to lose your co-captain? Because they've put faith in he and Tom Lynch as the cornerstones of their whole footy club."
