Hawthorn premiership star Campbell Brown is the latest out-of-contract player to join fledgling AFL franchise Gold Coast.

The 2008 premiership star told the Hawks on Tuesday he would not be extending his current deal with the club.

"While it is disappointing to lose such a quality player, all clubs know their lists are vulnerable over this period with the entry of two new clubs," said Hawthorn chief executive Stuart Fox.

"The club and our members have loved the way Campbell has gone about his footy while at Hawthorn and we feel we have invested heavily over the years in developing him into the respected footballer that he is today."

Brown follows former Adelaide key defender Nathan Bock, Port Adelaide utility Nathan Krakouer and Brisbane best and fairest winner Michael Rischitelli as out-of-contract players to join the Suns.

Brown and suns coach Guy McKenna will attend a media conference on the Gold Coast on Wednesday.

Brown played 159 games for Hawthorn after being selected by the club with pick No.32 in the 2001 draft.

He played 17 games with the Hawks in 2010 and qualified for life membership with the club.
