Jimmy Bartel has spoken on his future at Geelong - and he's kept a sense of humour about it.

Bartel has triggered a clause in his contract, meaning he can play on in 2017.

But with Geelong looking to recruit and no guarantee of a spot in Geelong's senior side next season, the Cats champ is weighing up his options.

With his tongue firmly in his cheek.

"I signed a four-year deal today with the Cats," he said on Channel 7 during the 2016 Caulfield Cup coverage.

"Just kidding."

Bartel said it would be "a tough decision", and was still being heavily considered.

"Maybe if I don't have much success at the races I might have to play again," he said.

"(I'm) still weighing up a few things with the club. You will know in good time.

"You obviously want to respect what the club are wanting to do but you laos have to see whether your body can stand up for another year."
