Geelong tall Nathan Vardy in high demand

Geelong ruckman/forward Nathan Vardy looks likely to leave the Cattery at season’s end due to a lack of opportunity.

Vardy has battled several injuries throughout his career, but has this year managed just one game at senior level due to the emergence of Shane Kersten and new recruits Rhys Stanley and Zac Smith, despite enjoying a relatively injury free run.

The 25-year-old rejected an offer to join the Bombers last season, and The Herald Sun has reported that the Western Bulldogs, Greater Western Sydney and Brisbane have all flagged their interested in Vardy this year.

Vardy, who is said to be growing frustrated with his lack of game time, has played 25 career games with the Cats, since being selected with pick No. 42 in the 2009 National Draft.

He enjoyed his most consistent year in 2013, playing 10 games, kicking 11 goals and averaging nine disposals per game.
