Geelong have confirmed their interest in delisted Crows forward Tyson Stengle this off-season, with the Cats among several potential suitors for the Woodville-West Torrens forward.

Stengle capped off a dramatic season on Sunday in leading the Eagles to the SANFL premiership, booting three goals in the 67-point win over Glenelg.

The 22-year-old was axed from Adelaide earlier this year following a string of off-field indiscretions, which cut his young career short.

Stengle has looked to keep his AFL dream alive, discussing his future with clubs in the days after claiming the SANFL premiership.

The South Australian junior showed promising glimpses at West Lakes across his 14 appearances with the Crows, where he moved to after two games with Richmond.

Having proven his worth with the Eagles - booting 44 goals from 19 games - Stengle is gaining further interest from multiple AFL clubs.

Geelong list manager Stephen Wells confirmed the Cats' interest in Stengle when speaking on SEN. 

"We think Tyson has had a terrific period with Woodville-West Torrens, including a good performance in a premiership-winning team," Wells said.

"We do have some interest in Tyson. We haven't committed to him yet, it's not just us who want him. Tyson will have to make that decision himself.

Tyson’s in a terrific position where he can have a bit of control over the decision that he makes and where he has his next opportunity at AFL level.

“We’d be pleased if Tyson ended up with Geelong.”

Geelong are understood to have swooped on former Blues and Crows forward Eddie Betts, who will join Chris Scott's coaching ranks for 2022.

Stengle and Betts are understood to be close friends, with the signing potentially a boost for the former's interest in joining the Cats.'s Callum Twomey reports that the Bombers join Geelong in expressing interest in Tyson Stengle.

Richmond and Collingwood are two clubs to have shown previous interest in Stengle this season, with clubs eyeing the exciting forward ahead of the Mid-Season Draft.
