Lions star close to contract decision

Star Brisbane Lions forward Jonathan Brown says a decision on his playing future will be made soon.

The 26-year-old full forward is off contract with the Lions at the end of the year, and has been the target of several Victorian clubs as they try to lure Brown home.

Speaking after the Lion's six-point loss to Carlton at the Gabba, which put an end to the club's finals aspirations, Brown said he was close to making a decision.

"I don't think it's far away to be honest," he said.

"I don't think playing finals or not playing finals makes a difference."

It's believed Brown has been seeking a five-year contract, which the Lions have refused to offer.

Carlton coach Brett Ratten said he would consider Brown if he is out of contract.

"If they're out of contract and there's an opportunity we'll assess any player in the AFL," he said.

"I dare say he's signed. I think he's a fantastic player.

"Like the other players who are out of contract we'll have a look at every list and every player, because at the end of the day teams will trade and we need to know who's out there."
