Triple M's Damian Barrett says "the scope is there" in Josh Kelly's contract for him to consider a move, after reports emerged about the trigger in his current GWS contract, but says the asking price is quite significant.

Kelly signed a two-year deal in 2019 to tie him to the Giants until the end of this season, but with reported triggers in his contract to extend that and make him effectively a Giant for life. 

"We saw, I think Jake Niall wrote an article about the $8 million trigger in his deal," JB asked him.

So Barrett broke down the current state of play around Kelly and the likelihood of an offer of that significance coming his way.

"We were told by his management that it was a less than one per cent chance he could contemplate a future outside of the Giants."
