Joe Daniher has commented on his link with a move out of Essendon, saying he is “comfortable” where he is.

The All-Australian has been connected with a move to the Swans, after he was seen having lunch with Sydney CEO Tom Harley earlier in the year.

Daniher had the opportunity to join the Swans as a father-son candidate, but instead chose the Bombers.

“Obviously there’s a lot in the media, which I’m not privy to because I don’t spend a lot of time reading newspapers or watching TV,” Daniher told the Herald Sun.

“But I’m comfortable. I’ve made some comments, the football club has made some comments and for me I can just get on with business.

“I can get on with the work I’m working on, and that’s fixing my body at the moment.

“I considered it (Sydney) when I was 15 years old and that feels like a lifetime ago now. I’m now 25 and I’m happy with the process we’re going through now.

“They’re (Sydney) a terrific football club. It also makes it a little bit hard when you’re 15, you’re quite young and trying to see what your life looks like a little bit further down the track.

“I don’t know about you, but I was a very immature 15-year-old trying to make mature decisions.”

Daniher will be a free agent at the end of next season when he comes out of contract.
