Former Melbourne co-captain Jack Grimes is reportedly considering his options at the end of the season, as the free agent is becoming increasingly frustrated that his good form for VFL affiliate Casey Scorpions is not being rewarded.
Grimes, who was made captain at a very young age, alongside team-mate Jack Trengove, has played every game for the Scorpions this season and has fallen behind the likes of youngsters Jayden Hunt, Josh Wagner and recruit Tom Bugg.
The 27 year old has remained stranded on 98 games this season and is hoping to notch his 100th at some point this season.
His manager Anthony McConville says that Grimes is doing all the right things but is concerned that his opportunities are limited at the Demons.
"Obviously, I'm concerned Jack hasn't played all year and has been fit and healthy," McConville told AFL.com.au.
"I am concerned that his future at Melbourne looks limited."
The Demons have a lot of work to do off the field with the likes of Tom McDonald, Neville Jetta, Jack Watts and Jack Trengove all remaining out of contract this season.
