The manager of Fremantle ruckman Sean Darcy has refuted suggestions their client is considering his future with the Dockers.

Darcy, who is contracted until the end of next year, had his name raised as a potentially available asset for keen suitors earlier this week, namely Geelong.

The Dockers ruckman hails from South Purrumbete, a country town west of Geelong, and according to a Western Australian publication was shopped to rival clubs by his management.

Phoenix Management Group agent and Essendon great Scott Lucas has since responded to the claims, refuting any meetings with the Cats.

Darcy wasn't alone in being tied to the exit at Cockburn, with senior trio Michael Walters, Nat Fyfe and Luke Ryan also listed in the report.

Ryan, another client of Lucas', signed a four-year deal with the Dockers in December last year to reman at the club until the end of 2027, leaving his agent perplexed by the murmurs.

Lucas confirmed both Darcy and Ryan aren't being shopped to rival clubs as they currently look to see out their deals with the Dockers.

"I have not had a conversation with Geelong, so that's it," Lucas toldĀ SENĀ when quizzed on Darcy's future.

"Now, I can't say what happens in two or three months' time, but right now that's incorrect.

"Luke Ryan is looking to go to St Kilda, the article referenced. He's contracted to the end of 2027.

"I'll leave it at that. That's all that needs to be said."

Unlike Darcy and Ryan, both Walters and Fyfe are unsigned for next year, joining forward Lachie Schultz and defender Joel Hamling in being the Dockers' only free agency in 2023.
