Hawks star considering Gold Coast offer

Hawthorn premiership star Campbell Brown has admitted he has been offered a contract from new AFL club Gold Coast.

But the rugged utility is adamant he won't be making any decision on the lucrative deal until the Hawks' 2010 campaign has finished.

The Suns are able to recruit a maximum of one uncontracted player from each of the 16 existing clubs ahead of their 2011 AFL debut.

Adelaide key defender Nathan Bock and Port Adelaide midfielder Nathan Krakouer have already been revealed as Gold Coast recruits.

The AFL's 17th club have also been strongly linked to several other stars including Geelong Brownlow medallist Gary Ablett, Western Bulldogs defender Jarrod Harbrow and Brown.

"The club have contacted my management and put an offer forward but we just thought it would be better to wait until the end of the year," Brown told Channel Nine's Footy Show on Thursday night.

"It's getting very close to finals and the team and myself don't need any distractions at this time of the year."

Brown, who turns 27 on Saturday, has played 157 games for the Hawks.

He said the Suns had not put any pressure on him to make a decision on his playing future while the Hawks were still in the finals race.

"At the end of the day it's my decision," he said.

"Whenever the season comes to an end we can sit down and make a good decision about it.

"There's no point rushing into it now.

"We're about to play a very important game against Collingwood which could decide who we play in the finals, whether we get a home final or not and then hopefully four more games after that."
