Coleman Medalist Scott Cummings thinks West Coast midfielder Andrew Gaff should ignore interest from Melbourne based clubs and re-sign with the Eagles.
Gaff is out of contract at the end of the 2018 season and attracted interest from the likes St Kilda and Hawthorn in the past as they seek to lure the on-baller back to his home state of Victoria.
“There is now an absolute argument for JK that he is more of a complete player than Buddy Franklin.”
Do you agree with Scotty? Who would you prefer?

“He is probably going to command around $700,000 – he gets a mountain of the footy,” Cummings said on Footy WA.
“He is a damaging outside player which makes me think he is best suited in WA. WA footy is fast, free flowing, skilful footy and that’s where he is at his best.
“If he decided to play the game and go back to Melbourne I’m not sure its the place for him – it’s a bit more harder and physical.”
Former Fremantle midfielder and St Kilda coach Scott Watters echoed Cummings thoughts, saying the Eagles must retain the services of the 25-year-old ball magnet.
“I think they should keep him,” Watters said.
“He uses the ball so well and is having a fantastic season so far.”
