Brisbane's Anthony Milford has a clause in his contract which is a player option for 2020, meaning he can officially speak with other clubs and receive contract offers from November 1.

The Courier-Mail believe the Broncos' five-eighth has the 12-month option in his favour, which doesn't come at the best time for Brisbane, who are currently staring down the barrel of a salary cap squeeze with the likes of Tevita Pangai Jr, Corey Oates and Andrew McCullough set to come out of contract.

Milford is not the only Bronco in the same vote, with Jack Bird, Matt Lodge and Darius Boyd all able to field offers next season.

“Anthony’s contract situation does mean that he can have formal talks with clubs from November 1 this year,” Milford's manager Sam Ayoub confirmed to The Courier-Mail regarding his deal.

“The Broncos have been very good to him and it’s quite possible that Anthony will want to extend his stay there, but at the same time every player has to weigh up their options.

“At the time (of brokering his current deal), we had discussions about whether to negotiate a three or four-year deal and it was agreed to do three years with an option in Anthony’s favour.

“Having that option means Anthony can be approached at the end of the season.”
