MIDFIELDER Aaron Hall's future with Gold Coast remains up in the air as rival clubs circle for his services in 2019.
AFL.com.au understands the 27-year-old, who is out of contract at season's end, is yet to be offered a new deal to stay with the Suns.
Despite missing the past seven weeks with a pectoral injury, Hall's outside speed and ability to run and carry has spurred interest from St Kilda, North Melbourne and Carlton.
While his injury has delayed talks, it is understood the Tasmanian is open to a move to Victoria.
Hall last signed a contract extension with the Suns in 2015 and was raised in trade discussions last season before returning for pre-season.
Looking to win the respect of new coach Stuart Dew, Hall returned to the senior side for rounds 2-4 after missing the start to the season with a broken finger.
After 26 disposals against West Coast in round four, he was dropped to the NEAFL for three weeks.
Recalled to the senior side in round eight, he collected 23 and 29 disposals against Melbourne and Port Adelaide respectively before injuring himself against Geelong in round 11.
Dew's influence after his first season at Metricon Stadium is set to be a big factor in the Suns' busy off-season movements.
Sydney defender Jake Lloyd, who worked closely with Dew in his time as an assistant at the Swans, is being courted with a long-term offer to move north.
Retaining restricted free agent Tom Lynch remains the club's No.1 priority, however there is growing expectation he will return home to Victoria.
Fellow free agents Michael Rischitelli and Jarrod Harbrow also remain unsigned for next season.
Kade Kolodjashnij, who played his first AFL game since round round four last week after concussion, is set to begin negotiations in coming weeks.
A two-year deal for Michael Barlow, who amassed 50 disposals and laid seven tackles in the NEAFL last weekend, is also set to expire at season's end.
Barlow will be in the frame for a recall when the Suns host Carlton on Saturday night.
