Ryan Crowley is reportedly close to becoming an Essendon player.
Channel Seven has reported that the former Fremantle tagger must only pass a medical before he officially becomes an Essendon player for 2016.
“I have spoken to some people at Essendon but I’m sure they’ve spoken to a lot of players,” Crowley told Channel Seven.
“There is a lot of water to go under the bridge, but if the opportunity comes up, like I said, I’d love to jump at it.”
“I’ve got a lot experience, and I suppose that’s something that has gone from their side recently through the circumstances.
“I could bring that, I feel like I can play just about every zone and show a bit of versatility.”
The Bombers can sign up to 10 top-up players for this season and can upgrade all five of the club’s rookies to its senior list.
