MAJAK Daw will sit down to discuss his football future with his manager during North Melbourne's round 15 bye as the out-of-contract tall's standing in the game continues to grow.

Daw has played just two senior games this season, with the strong form of All Australian ruckman Todd Goldstein and the Roos' trio of tall forwards, Drew Petrie, Jarrad Waite and Ben Brown, keeping him out of North's team.

But the 25-year-old's lack of opportunity belies the significant strides he has taken in 2016, his seventh season at Arden Street.

Daw looked the part as a forward in North's round eight win over Essendon and also ably shouldered the Roos' ruck duties in Goldstein's absence against Richmond in round 11, while his VFL form with Werribee has been consistently strong.

Speculation has grown, Daw will be in demand during this year's trade period and could be tempted to join a rival club that can offer him more senior games.

Daw's manager, Shane Casley of TLA-ESP, told his client had yet to make any decisions on his future but would turn his mind to it soon.

"We'll probably catch up with Majak during the bye and reassess how the season's been going and make some decisions from there," Casley said.

North coach Brad Scott has stated several times recently the Roos' desire to keep Daw beyond 2016, saying more opportunities will open up for him soon, especially once 33-year-olds Petrie and Waite retire.

"There will be speculation throughout the year, but we've got a lot of faith in Majak," Scott said last week.

"You don't have to look too deeply at our forwards, particularly their age, to see that there's going to be great opportunity here at North Melbourne for a long time."

It is also believed Daw feels a strong sense of loyalty towards North given its patience during his gradual development as footballer – he has played 18 senior games since debuting in 2013 – and the way the club stood by him during his criminal trial last year (Daw was acquitted of all charges).

Casley also manages Petrie and Brent Harvey, who are set to become free agents at the end of this season.

Casley said he would also touch base with the veteran duo during North's bye and look to open discussions with the club "a couple of weeks" after that.

Daw has been named for tonight's blockbuster against Hawthorn at Etihad Stadium.
