Adelaide Crow and former Carlton player Bryce Gibbs is set to retire at the end of the season.
The veteran player will play his last AFL game this Sunday against the club for which he played 231 games.
The South Australian made the move to Adelaide at the end of the 2017 signing a four-year deal with the Crows.
His first season saw him play 22 games, finishing 4th in the club’s best and fairest count as he stepped in for injured midfielders.
However, Gibbs’s future has been the focus of ongoing speculation since last season when he appeared to fall out of favour with Crows coaches.

The midfielder only 12 games throughout the season, dipping in and out of the club’s senior team and its reserves.
His 2020 season has seen even less senior footy, playing in just Rounds 1 and 9.
The former Glenelg player was taken with Carlton’s pick number 1 at the 2006 draft, making his way into the Blues’ leadership squad before even playing a senior game.
Gibbs and the Adelaide Football Club have reportedly come to a settlement on the remaining year on his contract.
