ON THE eve of what could be his last game in Adelaide colours, out-of-contract backman Jake Lever has admitted returning home to his family in Victoria is tempting.
Meanwhile, electrifying Adelaide forward Charlie Cameron conceded "it would be weird" if he left the club he has called home for four years, as the Brisbane Lions circle in a bid to lure the speedster back to Queensland.
Lever will be in high demand come season's end, with Melbourne the front-runner to secure his services.
On Saturday, he will help the Crows try to overcome Richmond at the MCG and win their first premiership since 1998.
Lever told reporters at the Grand Final parade family was a consideration, but not the only one.
"Family's big with everyone, not just myself. There are 25 other blokes that are here at the minute (who are) close with their family. That's obviously going to play a part in the decision, but I'll focus on Saturday and the contract will take care of itself," the 21-year-old said.
The speculation around the No. 14 selection from 2014 ramped up in the second half of the season, but Lever maintained a high standard through 17 matches in the home and away campaign, enough to earn him a spot in the Virgin Australia All Australian squad of 40.
"I try not to get caught up into it too much. Definitely just like to play my footy and just keep playing. This weekend's no different. To be honest, my future's probably the furthest thing away from my mind," Lever said.
Cameron is in a similar situation to Lever, except his deal lasts end of 2018.
The 23-year-old was born in Queensland, although he grew up in Western Australia, and Lions coach Chris Fagan has flagged his interest in bringing the five-goal preliminary final hero to his club.
However, Cameron said at the Grand Final parade on Friday leaving teammate Eddie Betts would be tough.
"He's been amazing for me in terms of my transition into AFL. He's helped me out a lot," Cameron told reporters.
"It would be weird if I left, but I haven't really thought about leaving."
Cameron acknowledged there was a temptation to return home.
"I guess I've always had that pull, but I've enjoyed my time here. I've got a great group of people around me in terms of Eddie (Betts) and the other indigenous players, Cam Ellis-Yolmen, that I'm pretty close with," he said.
Cameron was selected at No. 7 in the 2013 rookie draft.
