Joe Daniher makes a decision on his future

Joe Daniher wants to play for the Brisbane Lions.

In what has been a tumultuous 24 hours for Essendon, Daniher is the latest star Bomber to request a trade out of the embattled club.

His preference is to join the Lions.

“We put forward a contract offer to Joe, but he has expressed his strong desire to live away from Melbourne,” Essendon list boss Adrian Dodoro said.

“We understand that free agency is part of our industry and he has a right to explore his options.”

Adam Saad requested a trade to fierce rival Carlton on Tuesday.

3AW first reported the Lions’ interest in Daniher in August.
