West Coast are reportedly among the club still expressing an interest in retired ruckman Scott Lycett, with the Eagles having one "final crack" at their premiership player.
Lycett called time on his 146-game career after a five-year stint with Port Adelaide, having made the move back to his home state of South Australia the same year he won a flag with the Eagles.
The veteran ruckman had garnered interest from several Victorian clubs, including Collingwood and Richmond, before announcing his decision to hang up the boots.
The 31-year-old recently revealed he'll continue to play next year, however will do so at the lower level after an injury-riddled past few seasons at Alberton.
"I'll still play somewhere, but just for fun. The last couple of years were pretty well documented with how many injuries I've had," Lycett told SEN earlier this month.
"The advice from doctors, they're not quite sure how I've been able to keep playing with my knees, they're pretty amazed."
Interest in Lycett's services remains present, with AFL.com.au's Cal Twomey revealing hos former club West Coast have looked to tempt the 203cm big man into returning to the club for the 2024 season.
While still viewed as a "long shot", Lycett could extend his career into a 14th season if he were to make the move west.
West Coast has had a final crack at seeing if 2018 premiership ruckman Scott Lycett wants to un-retire and return to the Eagles. Still seen as a long shot after the Port big man announced his retirement, but the Eagles have been among the clubs with interest in Lycett. @AFLcomau

The Eagles have bolstered their ruck stocks already this off-season with the acquisition of GWS free agent Matthew Flynn, who made the move to Lathlain Park after falling out of favour under Adam Kingsley in New South Wales.
Flynn will look to link up with emerging ruckman Bailey Williams and potentially share the workload, while Harry Barnett is viewed as a long-term prospect for the club after being drafted into the system just a year ago.
Collingwood may still be interested in Lycett's services given their prior interest, while the Tigers aren't likely to still be pursuing the Ceduna-born ruckman given their recent acquisition of ex-Swan Sam Naismith as a delisted free agent.
St Kilda is another club that has reportedly expressed an interest in Lycett but has re-signed veteran tall Tom Campbell for the 2024 season.
