Suspended Essendon player Travis Colyer is reportedly open to signing to a new long term deal with the club, the Herald Sun has reported.

The 24-year-old has a year to run on his current contract, but like all of the 12 banned Essendon players, is free to leave the Bombers at the end of this season.

But Essendon has reportedly been informed that Colyer is willing to sign a long term extension and is prepared to move past the 2012 supplements drugs scandal which has forced him and 11 of his teammates to sit out the 2016 season.

Colyer has played 57 matches for the Bombers since being selected with pick No.26 in the 2009 National Draft.
