OUT-OF-CONTRACT Western Bulldogs midfielder Lin Jong will meet his manager over the next couple of days to make a decision about staying with the premiers or moving to Gold Coast.
His agent, Nick Gieschen of TLA, spoke to NAB Trade Radio on Tuesday and said Jong was pursuing more games at AFL level.
"All along, it's been about opportunity. Mid-year he hadn't played much footy. It's just about whether he's going to get regular footy at the Dogs," Gieschen said.
Jong was caught touring Collingwood's headquarters during the Dogs' bye. He played 11 consecutive games in the senior team before he was injured and left out of the Grand Final win against the Sydney Swans.
"He's had some really good, positive discussion with the coach (Luke Beveridge) in the past couple of weeks," Gieschen said.
Gieschen confirmed the Suns wanted to acquire Jong.
"They're (the Suns) after a certain type of player and he's probably one of a few guys that they would be talking to at this stage," Gieschen said.
"He's a required player at the Bulldogs and he certainly knows that."
Jong confirmed to reporters on Tuesday he had not yet made up his mind about his future.
"I don't know yet. I haven't had a really good chance to sit down and think about it," Jong said.
"It's been a big few days celebrating with the boys."
Jong was in tears when he broke his collarbone in the Dogs' elimination final win against West Coast but returned 16 days after surgery to win the medal for best afield in the VFL Grand Final.
