Brisbane Roar left-back Corey Brown has hinted “there’s a good chance” he’ll be in Melbourne Victory colours next season.
Brown’s Roar fell 2-0 away to Melbourne City in the elimination final on Friday night as the defender played the final four minutes of the game.
Roar snuck into finals at sixth position and had no shots on target against City.
It was reported in January Victory had made an approach for Brown and the 24-year-old spoke to FourFourTwo in the Victory’s facilities post-match and was not prepared to give a categorical answer.
“There’s a good chance,” Brown answered when quizzed on joining Victory.
“I’ll let them shed light on it, I can’t really announce it.”
Reflecting on the season, Brown conceded it was a bit of a turbulent season.
“There’s been off-field issues and that doesn’t help,” he said.
“The best thing to have in a club is stability and I think once they find that, they’ll kick on.”
Brown was now keen to just be in holiday mode.
“For now it’s about getting away from football for a bit, watch the World Cup,” Brown said.
“It’s an exciting time for Australian football, I won’t be there, but it’ll be good to mentally get away from the game.
“I still talk to Macca (Jamie Maclaren) quite a lot, he’s pushing hard over in Scotland to be in the World Cup, so hopefully he makes the squad.”
