Bombers forward Joe Daniher is set to tour the training facilities of the Brisbane Lions in the coming weeks, with the Queensland club showing plenty of interest in the 26-year-old.
According to SEN’s Sam Edmund, Daniher is expected to address the Lions’ interest as the Essendon free agent will look into what Brisbane are offering.
Daniher is also being closely monitored by Sydney, the club the Bombers’ spearhead requested a trade to 12 months ago.
“I think we all think Joe Daniher is on the move,” Edmund said on SEN Mornings.
“Is it Brisbane or is it Sydney? Depends on who you speak to, but the latest scuttlebutt has him touring the Brisbane Lions facilities very, very soon.
“It’s always been a lifestyle decision for Joe Daniher and I wonder what he will do going forward. His currency has certainly changed from last year.
“That first game back was unbelievable and we all came swooning but he’s come back to the pack since then.
“But if he can get himself fit and firing, a full pre-season and a happy state of mind, who knows what is possible.”
Geelong is another club looking onto Daniher’s services, with Cats star Tom Hawkins stating a move to Kardinia Park would be welcoming if it is to benefit the team.
“If a player like Joe – there have been a few others speculated as well – are going to improve us and our list management team can fit them in our system and salary cap then absolutely we would be looking to bring players like Joe in,” Hawkins told reporters on Tuesday.
