There’s An Update On The Future Of Brad Crouch

Oct 10, 2019


Adelaide Crows 2019 club champ Brad Crouch is expected to be at the club next year, but uncertainty remains beyond the 2020 season after he has reportedly fielded interest from six rival clubs.

According to a News Ltd report:

Geelong has formed part of a stack of rival interest for Brad Crouch this year, but the Adelaide midfielder is set to stay put during this trade period.

But Crouch, who wants a lucrative five-year deal from the Crows, is facing an uncertain long-term future.

The best and fairest midfielder becomes a restricted free agent at the end of next year and the Herald Sun has confirmed the Cats are among six clubs who have expressed interest.

With clubs like Geelong and Gold Coast knowing they would have to cough up a significant price to secure the 25-year-old, snaring him for no outlay under free agency rules in 12 months’ time holds appeal.

Crouch’s preference is to remain with the Crows, but his contract request is highly unlikely to be sanctioned any time soon given the new coach will want to assess the list over the coming months and into next season.
