Bryce Gibbs suggested on Thursday night that he would be staying at Carlton next year.

"Probably, yeah," Gibbs told Channel Nine's The Footy Show when asked about whether he would remain a Blue in 2015.

The 25-year-old midfielder becomes a restricted free agent at season's end, and has been the subject of recent speculation about a move back to his home state of South Australia.

It has been reported that Gibbs requested that the club outline its long-term plans before he puts pen to paper.

But the first draft pick of 2006 indicated that a deal with Carlton was still likely.

"[It] has always been a positive sign, no dramas from both ends I don't think."
