Brisbane Lions coach Leigh Matthews is confident star forward Jonathan Brown will be with the club next year.

The 26-year-old full forward is off contract at season's end and is believed to have been the target of lucrative offers from a number of Victorian clubs as they try to lure him home.

Brown indicated on the weekend an announcement on his future would be made soon.

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

Asked if he was confident Brown would be a Lion next year, Matthews responded: "It's Jonathan's decision, but the answer is yes more than no."

"I don't know to be honest, but I suspect he will still be here."

The Lions mentor said he had not spoken to Brown about his decision in recent days.

The club is expected to meet with his management team in Sydney later this week, before Saturday's match against the Swans at the SCG.
