Tom Browne Says Dustin Martin Is “Lending Proper Consideration” To A Gold Coast Move

Triple M Footy news breaker Tom Browne says that Richmond superstar Dustin Martin is genuinely “lending consideration” to a move to Gold Coast.

TOM BROWNE ON DUSTIN MARTIN CONSIDERING A GOLD COAST MOVE:

“My understanding is that Dusty’s having a break and considering all this”, Browne said on Tom Browne’s News.

“Dusty, my understanding is, will lend some consideration to whether he stays at Richmond and becomes a 300 game Richmond legend — which he already is — or diversifies if you like, goes to the Gold Coast for a bit of a fresh start… that might integrate a bit better with what he wants to do, lifestyle wise.”

Browne said that there are background discussions happening about Dusty’s future.

“He had his exit interview last week,” Browne said.

“I think his manager’s been in some type of discussions, just informally so far, with Richmond.

“I think there’s definitely a discussion going in the background at the moment about what Dusty staying at Richmond next year looks like.

“Whether he wants to seek, I wouldn’t say greener pastures, but other options.”

Browne reiterated that he isn’t definitively saying that Dusty will definitely leave.

“To summarise that, I’m not saying he’s going to leave RIchmond,” Browne said.

“He’s a Richmond legend, and there’s no indication of that (Dusty leaving) yet, I’m not trying to chase a headline.

“I’m just saying in the background at the moment, he’s lending proper consideration to this issue.”
