Daniel Wells considering offer from Collingwood

North Melbourne midfielder Daniel Wells could follow its four delisted players out the door, with reports the veteran is still weighing up his future.

Wells was offered a one-year contract extension by the Roos earlier this year, which has since improved to a two-year deal. However, he is yet to commit to the club, as he seriously considers a “strong push” from Collingwood, according the The Age.

Wells, 31, enjoyed a relatively injury free 2016, playing 19 games and averaging 23.1 disposals.

The Kangaroos said farewell to Brent Harvey, Drew Petrie, Michael Firrito and Nick Dal Santo on Saturday night, when Brad Scott’s men bowed out of the finals after a 62-point loss to the Crows in the elimination final, as the club embarks on drastic revamp of its list.

Collingwood is also understood to be interested in outgoing Roo Nick Dal Santo, while Magpies defender Nathan Brown could find himself going the other way, with North Melbourne said to be keen to bring the 2010 premiership player to Arden Street.


  1. given the way Boomer was treated at the end of this season by , I wouldn’t be confident as a player over 30y/o that my form would continue to dictate my contract offers into the future.

  2. Come on over Kangaroos…we will have Del Santo, Wells and Harvey joining Greenwood as they will then join a top 4 club in 2017.
    How can Kangaroos delist their MVP and best player irrespective of age? This clean out by the Roos and particularly axing Harvey will haunt them for decades. They have torn the soul out of the club and consigned themselves to bottom 4 for the next 5 years at least. The axing announcement also tore away any real chance they had in the finals this year. I hope Kangaroos supporters are ready for a decade in the wilderness now because guaranteed that is where you are headed. Harvey will go on and have another incredible couple of years with another club now and the Pies should take him along with all the others above.

  3. Top player with a history of injuries. Buckley plays his players very hard , They have a hard contested game plan, hence a lot of injuries for the pies players. As long as he is treated like a Ferrari and not a VK commodore doing all the dirty work it should work out OK. Pies need Elite kicks more than anything else.

  4. Collingwood would take anyone at the moment, big dog little bite. If Wells wants to go their let him, also del if he wants to go their too. Guarantee you collingwood don’t make the 8 next year. Bye bye bucks.

    • Ill give you 100:1 if you want to put money to that statement you goose. Pies will easily make the 8…just a reasonable run with injuries and they will comfortably make top 4…pies have a dynasty coming that will make Hawthorn look like Nar Nar Goon thirds.

      • Like they were meant to make it this year. Are collingwood going to compensate the bulldogs for taking Cloke off their hands? Their dynasty will be Buckley’s last year next Year. Top 4 your a dreamer.

  5. Collingwood are going to have a squad of 60 players next season. I swear they are linked with literally every player in the AFL.
