MELBOURNE midfielder Angus Brayshaw has labelled as "comical" reports suggesting he could leave the club at the end of the year.
Brayshaw is out of contract at season's end and has reportedly attracted opposition interest after missing out on selection in the opening three rounds of the season.
The 22-year-old returned to the senior team for the Demons' 67-point loss to Hawthorn on Sunday, gathering 19 disposals and laying four tackles.

"There's absolutely no truth from my end into it and I love Melbourne and I haven't even thought about (leaving)," Brayshaw said on AFL.com.au's AFL Exchange program.
"Then this (report) pops up; I find it almost comical."
Fremantle is reportedly one club tracking Brayshaw and star teammate Jesse Hogan, with the Dockers supposedly prepared to offer the latter a lucrative deal to move west.
Brayshaw's younger brother Andrew was the Dockers' top pick in last year's NAB AFL Draft, while Hogan is signed until the end of 2019.
"I find it funny. Just funny. That's the best way to describe it and Hogan has gone through it a lot and he's sick to death of it and now I've been lumped in," Brayshaw said.
