According to reports, Adelaide Crows forward Josh Jenkins has been offered a 5 year deal worth 750 thousand dollars a season by the Brisbane Lions. Jenkins contract expires at the end of the season and has not resigned with Adelaide yet so other clubs like Brisbane will be looking to lure him away.
The 27 year old is having a great start to the 2016 season with 26 goals in the first 9 games including an 8 goal game against the Western Bulldogs. After leaving Essendon, he has become a dangerous forward for the crows with his strong marking and goal kicking. Also, his speed and agility for a key position player is unbelievable and at best can be an unstoppable forward.
Adelaide coach Don Pyke is confident Josh Jenkins will stay.
“It’s an ongoing, work in progress and I’m going to leave it with them to get that deal done as soon as they can. Clearly he’s a wanted player and Josh is on the record saying he wants to stay and play, so we’ll let the list managers and the guys get the job done.” Pyke said.
This offer is apparently bigger than what the crows will offer him so there is a chance of him leaving. However, Jenkins has stated that he wants to stay and with the club performing better than Brisbane and being involved with a formidable forward line, he should eventually sign pen to paper and stay with the crows in the future.
