Pavlich's future 'to be resolved soon'

Fremantle skipper Matthew Pavlich has revealed his next AFL contract will be "resolved" soon and hopes David Mundy will remain a Docker.

Pavlich is almost certain to stay at Fremantle, although Adelaide are rumoured to be cobbling together a last-minute pitch to lure the 28-year-old back to his home state, with Gold Coast also reportedly still in the hunt.

The six-time All-Australian refused to categorically confirm he would remain at Fremantle but did give a strong hint when he said: "It's always hotly discussed my contract but the club and I are very satisfied where it's at and it will be resolved soon."

Mundy is on the radar of several Melbourne clubs but Pavlich was hopeful the 25-year-old would stay put.

"He's been in our leadership group for 12 months now and someone who we really model some behaviour on down here at Fremantle and he's certainly a wanted player," Pavlich said.

"Being named in the (preliminary) All-Australian squad of 40, it's the first time he's achieved that.

"He has certainly stepped up that midfield role.

"He was sort of a halfback, wing-type player (in the past) but his inside work and contested football has been hugely valued at our club this year and he's certainly taken his game to another level."

Out-of-contract defender Chris Tarrant is also considering a move back to Victoria, although Fremantle have offered him an extended pre-season and extra time in Melbourne after away games in a bid to convince him to stay.
