Adelaide forward Josh Jenkins says he has done his best to get good mate and Essendon defender Michael Hurley to the club next season. 

After speaking with AFL.com.au, Jenkins has revealed that Hurley has visited Adelaide a number of times this season to watch him and the Crows play. 

"I have had him and some other friends of ours over for a couple of games this year and he's enjoyed himself," Jenkins said.

''I've done my best to sell Adelaide to him."

However, Jenkins has not put any pressure on the banned Bomber defender, suggesting that he still has a difficult decision to make before the end of the season. 

AFL.com.au understands that the pair speak frequently and Jenkins says that he gives his honest and open feedback when Hurley asks about any club.

''If he asks me or inquires about what I think about Adelaide or what I think of Essendon or Western Bulldogs or whoever, then I'll give him my opinion,'' Jenkins said.

''Just as I went through contract stuff this year, I wanted to make the decision on my own because I'm the one who has to live with it and that's the same scenario for him.

''Certainly I'm sure once he gets back to Australia it's going to heat up and his decision is going to be a strong talking point.

''I know he'll make a decision that he's happy with and wherever he ends up, that club is going to be lucky to have him.''

Jenkins spent one year on the Essendon list before he was traded to the Adelaide Crows and grew a strong bond with Hurley. 

Hurley is expected to arrive back in Australia in the coming days after spending the last six weeks overseas as he takes time off from his WADA-imposed suspension.
