Hill IV is open to join the club.
St Kilda’s Brad Hill is reportedly open to joining a fourth AFL club AFL Media
The former Hawk and Docker are believed to be considering leaving the Saints for three years on a six-year deal worth around $900,000 in 2019.
Alastair Clarkson, 29, has revealed he may be interested in joining North Melbourne if he lands at Arden Street, having played under the legendary coach at Hawthorn.
Hill has been heavily criticized during his time at Saints since joining the club in 2020 and playing in various roles. He has averaged 21.1 disposals in 20 games this season.
It was after St Kilda great Leigh Montagna asked his former team to scout senior players such as Hill in a “reset”.
Since making his debut in 2012, Hill has played 210 AFL games, including 61 starts.
Grundy Dies When They Meet ‘Reality’, Says MCRA
Collingwood coach Craig McRae says star ruckman Brodie Grundy’s meeting with Melbourne is a “reality” of the modern landscape.
Earlier this month it was revealed that Grundy had been linked with the Devils over his uncertain future, with Giants football boss Jason McCartney seen meeting with the big man’s manager.
Grundy’s links to rival clubs – which also include Geelong and Port Adelaide – come despite the 28-year-old remaining under contract at the Paces in 2019 with a good deal worth around $7 million.
But speaking on SEN, McRae said such approaches from other parties reflected an increase in player activity.
“I’m more of what I think is reality,” McCray said.
“It’s happening all over the country. We can’t control free agency. Brodie is a little bit different, he’s a contracted player, but managements talk to people, our list manager Graham Wright is talking to the manager and the details seem to be correct.
“Well that gives me the opportunity to open the door so I’m more approachable, not just to accept it, but to have the maturity to be like, ‘You’re back in our wall,’ you’re a Collingwood player, let’s get to work, let’s work here, let’s do better.”
It comes as Collingwood is said to be one of several Victorian clubs looking to out-contract Billy Frampton. AFL Media
“It adds some more intrigue behind Brody Grundy’s plan, doesn’t it?” AFL Media Callum Twomey spoke about the Pies’ relationship with Frampton on SEN.
“You’re going to be very active, Piss. They’ve got Dan McStay in, Bobby Hill is probably coming in, interest in Tim Taranto and now Billy Frampton too.
However, Toomey added that he thought Richmond had placed him “ahead” of Collingwood in the race for Taranto.
