BRYCE Gibbs and Marc Murphy have been told they won't be traded by Carlton at the end of this year, despite the club previously offering no public guarantees on their future.

The pair were linked to possible departures at the end of the season after Blues president Mark LoGiudice in April said the club would consider all options at the trade table to improve its list.

But after another demoralising loss, by 77 points to Geelong on Friday night, Gibbs revealed senior Blues officials had approached him and Murphy in recent weeks to clarify where the duo sat in their plans.

"The club sat us down a couple of weeks ago, both me and Marc, and said we're not going anywhere," Gibbs told SEN on Saturday.

"We've committed to the footy club, the footy club has committed to both of us and we're going to be here for the next few years."

The No.1 draft picks both agreed to long-term deals last year, with Gibbs signing a five-year contract extension and Murphy committing for another four seasons.

The Carlton midfielder, who won the club's best and fairest last season, said the meeting had given him some confidence.

"It’s fantastic. We're not in the position we want to be and it's about sticking together and working through this together. That's what we're going to do," he said.

The Blues remain anchored to the bottom of the ladder with just one win this season, which came against last year's wooden-spooner St Kilda in Wellington in round four.

Gibbs said some of the club's efforts this season had been "pathetic", as pressure intensifies on coach Mick Malthouse.

The 26-year-old also lamented his own run of form.

"I'm definitely not playing at the level I was last year and it’s a number of different things," admitted Gibbs.

"I've been addressing it with the line coach Dean Laidley but we've been working through it but just haven't pieced it together in one game just yet.

"I'm extremely disappointed with the way I've been going about my footy so far this year and I need to do something about it."
