GOLD Coast has asked for AFL help as it investigates explosive claims by former Suns player Karmichael Hunt.

AFL football operations manager Mark Evans confirmed on Monday afternoon that the League would be involved when Suns players are questioned.

Hunt's claims of illicit drug use during his time at the club were made public at the weekend.

Evans said Gold Coast chief executive Andrew Travis contacted the League on Monday and asked for the AFL to be involved in the club's investigation.

Evans also said the AFL had previously asked Queensland authorities for information about Hunt's claims, but were told that it could not be shared.

"Now the information is in the public realm, we can again assist to take that direct questioning to the players," Evans said.

He added that the investigation and its findings would be confidential.

"If any information comes up around drug use, it will be treated under the illicit drug policy," Evans said.

The AFL Players Association also expects to play a role in the investigation process. 

The Suns contacted Hunt's lawyers on Monday in a bid to obtain the statements provided to the Queensland Crime Commission that were made public on Sunday in newspapers.

Hunt allegedly made the explosive allegations in a statement to Queensland police after being charged earlier this year with possession of cocaine.

Hunt pleaded guilty to four counts of cocaine possession in March after doing a deal with prosecutors in which the original, more serious, charges of supply were downgraded.

Travis was not confident of obtaining the statements from Hunt's lawyers.
