"We'd love to have him": Lions keen on Crow Cameron


Brisbane have confirmed their interested in luring Adelaide’s Charlie Cameron to continue his promising AFL career in his home state of Queensland.

Cameron, 23, is contracted with the Crows to the end of 2018 but is believed to be keen on moving closer to family.

He grew up in northwest Queensland and Brisbane before moving to Perth as a teenager.

Coach Chris Fagan says the speedy forward is an attractive prospect as his young Lions vie to improve from bottom of the ladder in 2017.

“We’re certainly interested in getting players to our club to help us progress up the ladder and his age, profile and talent would certainly be something we’d be interested in,” Fagan told radio show Sportsday.

“If Charlie Cameron were to be available and interested in coming to Brisbane, we’d love to have him as part of our team.”

Cameron leads the top-of-the-ladder Crows for goal assists this season and has kicked 80 majors in his 68-game career.

The prospect of losing the speedster, who adds an extra dimension to both Adelaide’s forward line and midfield, is a blow for the Crows, who are already pondering the looming headache of star key position prospects Jake Lever and Mitch McGovern departing to their respective home states.

But Adelaide would hold the upper hand in any trade deal for next season, given Cameron remains under contract for 2018.

However, the Lions would be acutely aware of the Crows internal dynamics – and what would satisfy them at the trade table – given Brisbane’s recently-appointed General Manager of Football is David Noble, who was previously Adelaide’s long-term Head of Football.
