Young Melbourne star Tom Scully and members of his family flew from Melbourne to meet with AFL expansion side Greater Western Sydney.

But Scully again strongly denied speculation that a deal with the Giants is effectively done.

"I'm just going up to have a look around ... I'm going up with an open mind, just go up and meet a few people and see what happens from there," he told Channel Nine's The Footy Show.

"No, I haven't (signed) - just go up and have a look."

An announcement on Scully's future is expected in the next few days.

Scully's father Phil was among members of their family who also went up to meet with the club and tour their facilities.

"We support Tom, whatever he does," Phil Scully said.

Scully is the No.1 recruiting target for GWS and they are offering him a five-year deal worth more than $5 million.

But Melbourne have not given up hope that they can keep Scully, who was the No.1 pick in the 2009 national draft.

The Giants have already confirmed that they have signed fellow uncontracted players Callan Ward (Western Bulldogs), Phil Davis (Adelaide) and Rhys Palmer (Fremantle).
