Young Tigers tall Callum Coleman-Jones is reportedly set to be a player in demand at the end of the season.

The Herald Sun reports that the 21-year old will be “heavily pursued” by rival clubs given the lack of key position prospects in this year’s national draft.

The out-of-contract youngster has struggled to crack into Richmond’s senior side since being drafted to the club with Pick 20 in the 2017 draft, managing just one AFL game.

Despite the interest, it is understood that Coleman-Jones has shown no desire to depart Tigerland.

The South Australian has previously been pursued by rivals, including GWS, with some clubs even offering up late first-round picks to secure him, the report states.

Callum-Jones has just finished serving his 10-game AFL suspension for his COVID-19 protocols breach in Queensland last year.

Rival recruiters reportedly watched him in Richmond’s Round 1 VFL win over Sandringham at Punt Road on Friday.
