GEELONG'S Steven Motlop has refused to be drawn on his future after Cats chief executive Brian Cook revealed the club is open to offers for the out-of-contract speedster.
The 26-year-old, who was put up for trade at the end of last year, will become a restricted free agent at season's end.
On Saturday, Cook told ABC Grandstand the Cats could entertain a possible trade for Motlop, saying "the option is there to do that".
Motlop remained tight-lipped when asked about his contract status in the wake of Cook's radio comments.
"I haven't really thought about it, to be honest," Motlop told Channel Nine on Monday night.
"I haven't spoken to my manager about it at all. I'm just trying to worry about week by week as it is."
When asked if he wanted to remain at Geelong, Motlop said: "Definitely, I love the club."
Cook refused to rule out a trade for Motlop when quizzed before Saturday's clash with Richmond at Simonds Stadium.
"There might be an arrangement out there that would suit both our requirements and theirs," Cook said.
"But if it doesn't, we'll keep him."
Motlop showed his intent in the opening minutes of the 14-point win over Richmond by laying a fair bump on defender Bachar Houli near the boundary line, much to the delight of the parochial home crowd.
He also showcased his line-breaking speed with bursts through the middle of the ground – something that had been lacking this season – and set up scoring opportunities.
Motlop, who was rested from the previous two games, finished with 19 disposals, seven inside 50s and a last-quarter banana goal that halted the Tigers' momentum.
His physicality against Richmond drew praise from Geelong coach Chris Scott.
"They [the crowd] they got behind him [Motlop]," Scott told Fox Footy on Monday night.
"It's amazing how your supporters get behind players that really pressure early in games and kind of set the scene. As much as anyone, he did set the scene for the players.
"There was that bump on Houli – questionable if that was the right thing to do in the circumstances – but he bounced up and chased and pressured again."
