The youngster has signed a deal with Essendon which will see him stay with the club until at least March 18th. This means he’ll be with the squad for the NAB Challenge outings on March 7 against St Kilda and on March 13th against Greater Western Sydney. The Bombers were allowed top-up players after the AFL’s Anti-Doping Tribunal served infraction notices to 34 former and current team players. This led to most of the current squad excluding themselves from the NAB Challenge games.
Michael is taking things one day at a time, but said he’d definitely consider staying with Essendon for the home and away season if they should happen to ask him. He added that he’s going to enjoy himself while there and will just have to see what happens after the first two games.
