According to a report from SEN's Sam Edmund, the 22-year-old is being "strongly considered" by the expansion side who have a place to fill on their senior list following Hugh Greenwood's shock departure to North Melbourne.
While highly touted during his under-age years, the pick 36 from the 2017 draft has been afforded little opportunity to impress at AFL level, having made just 12 senior appearances since debuting in Round 1, 2019.
Speaking on radio waves on Monday afternoon, Edmund explained that given Constable has nominated for the two-night draft, the Suns appear set to offer him a lifeline.
“He (Constable) has today nominated for the National Draft, so that paperwork is in,” the reporter claimed.
“He was delisted by Geelong last month - he is now being strongly considered by Gold Coast, who are weighing up whether to take the midfielder in the wake of Hugh Greenwood’s sudden departure to North Melbourne.”
Although the Sandringham Dragons product has managed to produce a mean of just 18.5 disposals across his AFL career, this number ballooned to 31.75 across his eight VFL appearances in 2021.
Should the Suns manage to select Constable with one of their latter two selections (picks 97 and 115) and this gulf in performance proceeds to shrink, the Stuart Dew side will have secured themselves a bargain.
The AFL Draft is set to take place on November 24 and 25, with the Rookie Draft on the 26th.
