Patrick Dangerfield will reportedly announce his intentions to join Geelong this week.

The Herald Sun has reported that Dangerfield has opted to join the Cats next year on what is believed to be a five-year deal.

However, the restricted free agent will have to wait to see if the Crows match Geelong’s offer.

If Adelaide does match Geelong’s offer, then Dangerfield would be forced to take his chances in the pre-season draft, where one of the eight teams that ¬≠finished below the Cats would almost certainly take him.
