MELBOURNE defender James Frawley has put a $800,000 bounty on his head to switch clubs.

The out-of-contact Demon has delayed contract talks with his club and his manager has spoken to several clubs under the free agency rules.

It's understood two clubs, believed to be Carlton and Hawthorn, have been told that $800,000 is the ballpark figure which would extract the All Australian from the Demons.

It's also believed Fremantle, an active player in the free-agency market last year, would be another interested party.

St Kilda, where his uncle Danny Frawley captained, and Greater Western Sydney would also be suitors.

Frawley's manager Alex McDonald did not return calls last night.

If Frawley does leave, and Melbourne finishes last on the ladder, it would get pick No.1, and then pick No.2 as compensation for Frawley.

If a club was prepared to pay Frawley in the vicinity of $800,000, it would make Frawley the highest paid key defender in the competition, and among the highest-paid 25 players in the competition.

Frawley remains undecided about his future, but the Demons privately are concerned that, at the moment, they are not playing the kind of football which would encourage Frawley to commit long-term.

The 25-year-old has played 121 games over eight years, but is his eligible for unrestricted free agency because his front-ended contract meant this year he was not among the highest paid players at the club,

It means Frawley could walk without a trade.

It was revealed in January, Frawley put contract talks on hold because he wanted to ''see the direction of the club'' in 2014.

McDonald said at the time: ''James is keen to let the season take shape before we start focusing on contract discussions.''

In February, Frawley joked that if coach Paul Roos agreed to sign on for a third year, he would re-sign with the club.

After a promising NAB Challenge, the Demons have struggled in the season proper and are on the bottom of the ladder with a percentage of 47.4
