A Giant move for Cameron?

Leon Cameron’s move to Port Adelaide as coach may not be a fait accompli, with the highly regarded Hawthorn assistant in Sydney today meeting Greater Western Sydney about a vacancy there.

Cameron flew to Sydney this morning with Giants football manager Graeme Allan to meet the club about the senior assistant’s position vacated by Mark Williams.

Cameron is in the box seat for the Port Adelaide senior coaching position, but is being heavily pursued by GWS for the senior assistant role under Kevin Sheedy, which, The Age understands, is tied into a succession plan with a view to taking  over from the veteran coach.

‘‘I can confirm that he is being interviewed by GWS today and they are in the middle of that interview process now,’’ Cameron’s manager Dan Richardson said.

The Giants’ move could mean that Cameron has to make a decision on which club he wants to join.

Cameron remains contracted to Hawthorn, which has indicated a preparedness to release him from that contract were he to secure a senior job.

Were Port Adelaide to miss out on Cameron, it is unclear who its next candidate would be, the club having been rebuffed by Rodney Eade and Brett Ratten.
